Scientists have succeeded in reconstructing biomolecules in their mirror-image form. The researchers’ goal is to create a mirror-image artificial protein synthesis system. Their aim is to produce mirror-image therapeutic proteins, such as antibodies, which would be protected from biological breakdown in the body and do not provoke any immune response.
