Abstract

Developmental bioelectricity refers to the regulation of cell, tissue, and organ level patterning and behaviour as the result of endogenous electricity mediated signalling. Cells and tissues of all types use ion fluxes to communicate electrically. Bioelectric modulation has shown control over complex morphogenesis and remodelling, not just merely setting the individual cell identity.

With the advances in bio-engineering, multifunctional organic molecular devices with electric field sensing and modulation capability have been designed named as Twin bio-molecular intra cellular electro sensing device. The sensor module is derived from Tetraphenylethylene (TPE), which is a two photon fluorophore. The TPE sensor relies on the ultrafast photo-induced electron transfer (PeT) process to allow large changes in the electric field to be detected. The modulator module is an organic photoconductor, made of naphthalimide (NAI), whose resistivity can be tuned by using an ultraviolet optical source.

This Twin bio-molecular intra cellular electro sensing device, through cellular docking can be assessed and modulated to bring about homeostasis.
