In order to introduce ionic bonds into traditional surfactant-like peptide to develop self-assembling materials with better properties, a catanionic surfactant-like peptide A(6)K(+/-) was designed by removing the protecting -NH(2) at the C-terminus of the cationic surfactant-like peptide A(6)K. Both TEM and AFM observations revealed that A(6)K(+/-) could form longer nanofibers than A(6)K did. On mica surface, A(6)K could form membrane-like structures, which were likely formed by unassembled… CONTINUE READING
