Tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) is a tube-shaped, exceptionally stable plant virus, which is among the biomolecule complexes offering most promising perspectives for nanotechnology applications. Every viral nanotube self-assembles from a single RNA strand and numerous identical coat protein (CP) subunits. Here we demonstrate that biotechnologically engineered(More)
With the advances made in surface patterning by micro- and nanotechnology, alternative methods to immobilize biomolecules for different purposes are highly desired. RGD peptides are commonly used to create cell-attractive surfaces for cell-biological and also medical applications. We have developed a fast, one-step method to bind RGD peptides covalently to(More)
The capability of some natural molecular building blocks to self-organize into defined supramolecular architectures is a versatile tool for nanotechnological applications. Their site-selective integration into a technical context, however, still poses a major challenge. RNA-directed self-assembly of tobacco mosaic virus-derived coat protein on immobilized(More)
We report two crystal structures of a synthetic porphyrin molecule which was programmed for self-assembly. The same groups which ensure that bacteriochlorophylls c, d, and e can self-assemble into the chlorosomal nanorods, the photosynthetic antenna system of some green bacteria, have been engineered into desired positions of the tetrapyrrolic macrocycle.(More)
The combination of in situ ellipsometry with atomic force microscopy in the liquid for the study of adsorption of creatine phosphokinase (CPK) onto silicon wafers was shown for the first time. The thickness, adsorbed amount, and topographic information of the adsorbed CPK layers were obtained under different pH conditions. The thickness values of adsorbed(More)
The study on the adsorption of hexokinase (HK) onto silicon wafers was carried out by means of in situ ellipsometry and atomic force microscopy in the liquid. The thickness values of the adsorbed HK layer determined by both techniques were in excellent agreement and evidenced HK monolayer formation. The adsorption of HK onto Si wafers was favored at low(More)
A novel method to produce sub-microwalled chemically activated polymer microwells by one-step UV-lithography under ambient conditions which are selectively coated with gelatin is introduced. The dimensions as well as the shape of the resulting polystyrene structures are both tunable merely by the irradiation time through one and the same mask. It is shown(More)
A novel class of metal organic frameworks (MOFs) has been synthesized from Cu-acetate and dicarboxylic acids using liquid phase epitaxy. The SURMOF-2 isoreticular series exhibits P4 symmetry, for the longest linker a channel-size of 3 × 3 nm(2) is obtained, one of the largest values reported for any MOF so far. High quality, ab-initio electronic structure(More)
We demonstrate that the adsorption of cationic spherical polyelectrolyte brushes (SPB) on negatively charged mica substrates can be controlled in situ by the ionic strength of the suspension. The SPB used in our experiments consist of colloidal core particles made of polystyrene. Long cationic polyelectrolyte chains are grafted onto these cores that have(More)
The coating of regular-shaped, readily available nanorod biotemplates with inorganic compounds has attracted increasing interest during recent years. The goal is an effective, bioinspired fabrication of fiber-reinforced composites and robust, miniaturized technical devices. Major challenges in the synthesis of applicable mineralized nanorods lie in(More)
