Design of peptides for thin films, coatings and microcapsules for applications in biotechnology.

A highly-interdisciplinary approach has been developed for minimizing the immunogenicity of films, coatings, microcapsules and other nano-structured materials fabricated from designed polypeptide chains. It is to base the amino-acid sequences on solvent-exposed regions in the folded states of proteins from the same organism. Each such region that meets… CONTINUE READING
