Solid-binding peptides have been used increasingly as molecular
building blocks in nanobiotechnology as they can direct the
assembly and functionalisation of a diverse range of materials and
have the ability to regulate the synthesis of nanoparticles and
complex nanostructures. Nanostructured materials such as β-sheet
fibril-forming peptides and α-helical coiled coil systems have
displayed many useful properties including stimulus-responsiveness,... more...
