Formation of amphipathic amyloid monolayers from fungal hydrophobin proteins.


The fungal hydrophobins are small proteins that are able to spontaneously self-assemble into amphipathic monolayers at hydrophobic:hydrophilic interfaces. These protein monolayers can reverse the wettability of a surface, making them suitable for increasing the biocompatibility of many hydrophobic nanomaterials. One subgroup of this family, the class I… (More)
