Protein adsorption on solid surfaces has been gaining wide interests in the fields of drag delivery, biosensor, and biomedical diagnosis. Peptides, small proteins, also bind to solid surfaces. Recently, there are a variety of peptides have been developed and reported which show not only a binding affinity on solid surfaces but also spontaneous organizing into long-range ordered structures on surfaces. We investigate the thermal stability of self-assembled peptides on graphite. We utilized…

Selection of peptides with semiconductor binding specificity for directed nanocrystal assembly
It is shown that combinatorial phage-display libraries can be used to evolve peptides that bind to a range of semiconductor surfaces with high specificity, depending on the crystallographic orientation and composition of the structurally similar materials the authors have used.
