We have investigated the supramolecular structure of helical ribbons formed during self-assembly of a β-sheet peptide using computer simulation. We tested a wide range of molecular packing geometries consistent with the experimental dimensions to identify the most stable structure, and then systematically changed the helical geometry to investigate its energy landscape. The effect of pH was incorporated by scaling the amount of charge on the side chains based on the electrostatic double layer… CONTINUE READING
