Characterization of the cspB gene encoding PS2, an ordered surface‐layer protein in Corynebacterium glutamicum
It is demonstrated that the Slayer protein is the product of the cspB gene, which is one of two major proteins detected in the culture media of various Corynebacterium glutamicum strains.
Morphological changes of phosphatidylcholine bilayers induced by melittin: vesicularization, fusion, discoidal particles.
Molecular biology of S-layers.
This chapter reports on the molecular biology of crystalline surface layers of different bacterial groups and investigates the rearrangement by reciprocal recombination in Campylobacter fetus and the molecular bases for some applications are discussed.

Polymorphism of Lecithins
Lecithin–water systems display a variety of phases, several of which belong to a class of structures recently discovered in the anhydrous divalent cation-soaps, which are clustered in rod-shaped regions, embedded in a disordered paraffin matrix.
Self-assembly of regular hollow icosahedra in salt-free catanionic solutions
It is shown that in salt-free mixtures of anionic and cationic surfactants, such bilayers can self-assemble into hollow aggregates with a regular icosahedral shape, which are larger than any known icosahedra protein assembly or virus capsid.

A simple alternative method based on self-assembling nanotubes formed by a synthetic therapeutic octapeptide, Lanreotide in water is reported, revealing the hexagonal packing of nanot tubes, and high degree of monodispersity in the tube diameter and wall thickness.
The crystal lattice of Paramecium trichocysts before and after exocytosis by X-ray diffraction and freeze-fracture electron microscopy
A combination of x-ray powder diffraction, freeze-etching, and freeze-fracture electron microscopy, and density measurements are used to show that trichocyst contents are indeed protein crystals and to determine the elementary unit cell of both the compact intracellular and the extended extracellular form.
