Photosynthesis is Nature's major process for converting solar into chemical energy. One of the key players in this process is the multiprotein complex photosystem I (PSI) that through absorption of incident photons enables electron transfer, which makes this protein attractive for applications in bioinspired photoactive hybrid materials. However, the(More)
Interfacing proteins with electrode surfaces is important for the field of bioelectronics. Here, a general concept based on phage display is presented to evolve small peptide binders for immobilizing and orienting large protein complexes on semiconducting substrates. Employing this method, photosystem I is incorporated into solid-state biophotovoltaic cells.
Proteins can dramatically change their conformation under environmental conditions such as temperature and pH. In this context, Glycoprotein's conformational determination is challenging. This is due to the variety of domains which contain rich chemical characters existing within this complex. Here we demonstrate a new, straightforward and efficient(More)
Photosystem I (PSI) is a key element in Nature’s photosynthesis and an attractive building block for bio-inspired solar energy conversion systems. In article number 1600393, Ryan C. Chiechi, Andreas Herrmann, and co-workers describe how phage display enables the selection of small peptides that allow almost perfect orientation of PSI on semiconductor(More)
