A nanocompartment system based on two deletion mutants of the large channel protein FhuA (FhuA Delta1-129; FhuA Delta1-160) and an ABA triblock copolymer (PMOXA-PDMS-PMOXA) has been developed for putative biotechnological applications. FhuA is ideally suited for applications in biotechnology due to its monomeric structure, large pore diameter (39-46 A(More)
Membrane channels are typically around or less than 1 nm in diameter and a description of the flow through them requires a molecular approach called nanofluidic. The ion current through channels is extremely sensitive to pore sizes. It is tempting to use the ion current to probe conformational changes of the channel or, for a fixed channel conformation, the(More)
We present an example of the use of self-assembly of biomolecules to create nanostructured building blocks. The resulting individual compartments can be tailored to fulfil specific functions: catalysis of a chemical reaction in a confined environment, detection on a molecular level and feedback with the outside. For example, such individually designed(More)
