Self-assembling peptide nanotubes

  title={Self-assembling peptide nanotubes},
  author={Shane Scanlon and Amalia Aggeli},
JUN-AUG 2008 | VOLUME 3 | NUMBER 3-4 22 Peptide nanotubes Nanotubular structures can form from a variety of different materials such as inorganic19–22, carbon23, biological microtubules, porins24, viral proteins25, α-lactalbumin26, amyloid proteins27, DNA28,29, lipids30,31 carbohydrates32–34, synthetic polymers35, and other organic systems36–44. Molecular self-assembly is the main bottom-up approach45 for the affordable production of bulk quantities of well-defined nanostructures. Biological… CONTINUE READING
