Peptide mixtures spontaneously formed micrometer-sized fibers and ribbons from aqueous solution. Hydrolyzed gliadin produced short, slightly elliptical fibers while hydrolyzed wheat gluten, a mixture of gliadin and glutenin, formed round fibers of similar size. Mixing hydrolyzed gliadin with increasing molar amounts of myoglobin or amylase resulted in longer, wider fibers that transitioned from round to rectangular cross section. Fiber size, morphology, and modulus were controlled by peptide… CONTINUE READING
