Researchers Uncover the Secret Behind Ivy’s Natural Adhesive Paving the Way for New Biomimicry Advances #Biohacking

Via Adhesives Charles Darwin was the first to observe that Ivy exudes a liquid adhesive that helps it to cling to surfaces. Now researchers at Ohio State University have identified the protein that allows Ivy to stick. Nanospherical arabinogalactan proteins (AGPs) allow Ivy’s adhesive to enter nanoscale openings rather than...
