Engineering amyloidogenicity towards the development of nanofibrillar materials.

Abstract

When folded into their native structures, proteins in biological systems function as nanostructured machines. By contrast, some polypeptides tend to aggregate into other well-ordered structures, namely amyloid fibrils. Such well-ordered protein fibrils are attractive materials for nanobiotechnology because they self-associate through noncovalent bonds under… (More)
