A.M. Smith, Rational Redesign and Characterisation of a Peptide-based Fibre, Ph.D. thesis, University of Sussex, Towards an Atomistic Structure of a De Novo Designed Peptide Fibre. In: Rational redesign and characterisation of a peptide-based fibre book Imaging at High Spatial and Temporal Resolution In Vitro and In Vivo.

Author: Thomas Harry Sharp. Two stages in the rational redesign of a peptide-based, self-assembling fiber (SAF) are described. The SAF system comprises two peptides designed to form an offset a-helical coiled-coil heterodimer. In addition to the earlier follow-up papers detailing improvements to Rational redesign and characterisation of a peptide-based fibre book design and more-detailed characterisation of fibres [15, 16], Kajava and colleagues have recently reported that the αFFP system can be supplemented to incorporate the cell-binding peptide moiety, RGD, to support cell growth in culture [17 •].Conticello and colleagues have followed up their work on the YZ1 Cited by: stand protein folding, and, therefore, the rational design of protein structure and function is in its infancy.3,4 This chapter focuses on supramolecular assemblies that are formed using a variety of de novo designed peptide-based tectons.

The development of small molecules that can efficiently gel water is of great interest for researchers in the field of recently found that a short peptide-based molecule (Nap-GFFpY-OMe) could form hydrogels at a minimum gelation concentration of wt% after enzymatic conversion, which was the most efficient small molecular hydrogelator reported up.

Peptide-based fibrous biomaterials: some things old, new and borrowed Derek N Woolfson1,2 and Maxim G Ryadnov1 Bioinspired fibrous materials that span the nano-to-meso scales have potentially broad applications in nanobiotechnology; for instance, as scaffolds in 3D cell culture and tissue engineering, and as templates for the assembly of.

This article explores recent advances in the design and engineering of materials wholly or principally constructed from peptides. We focus on materials that are able to respond to changes in their environment (pH, ionic strength, temperature, light, oxidation/reduction state, presence of small molecules or the catalytic activity of enzymes) by altering their macromolecular by: Porous materials find widespread application in storage, separation, and catalytic technologies.

We report a crystalline porous solid with adaptable porosity, in which a simple dipeptide linker is arranged in a regular array by coordination to metal centers. Experiments reinforced by molecular dynamics simulations showed that low-energy torsions and displacements of the peptides.

ANNUAL REPORT CONTENTS IMB is committed to improving quality of life for all by pursuing discoveries through fundamental research, inventing biotechnologies, and advancing cures for disease. The same principle can be used to deliver chemotherapy drugs directly to a tumor and activate them only when on site.

Nanotechnologies can also be applied to biomaterials. For example, soft tissue engineering can make use of nanofibers, nanotubes, and peptide-based self-assembled nanostructures to form scaffolds promoting tissue growth [].

Background. The discovery of RNA interference (RNAi) has changed the field of gene therapy. RNAi is a post-transcriptional gene silencing process that can specifically and potently knock down the expression of target genes both in vitro and in vivo [1, 2].RNAi can be induced by short interfering RNA (siRNA).

siRNAs are double stranded RNA fragments with 21–23 nucleotides Cited by: 7. Thus, by employing the techniques described here, which utilize the unique properties of specific short peptides derived from motifs found in full-length proteins, one may accelerate the identification of functional motifs in proteins and the development of peptide-based inhibitors of pathogenic by: 2.

Peptide amphiphiles are peptide-based molecules that self-assemble into structures including high aspect ratio nanofibers. A peptide amphiphile typically comprises a hydrophilic peptide sequence with an attached lipid chains, in this case being a lipopeptide. They were first described by the group of Matthew Tirrell in These molecules are often composed of multiple.

The hydrocarbon stapling technique combines two α-helix stabilisation strategies, namely α,α-disubstitution and macrocyclic bridge α,α-disubstituted residues bearing olefin side chains of varying lengths are introduced into the peptide α-helix, followed by a ruthenium-catalysed ring-closing metathesis reaction to form the staple across one or two α-helical turns Cited by:   The computational design methods and stable scaffolds generated provide a promising starting point for the development of a new generation of peptide-based by:   The complex nature of in vivo gene transfer establishes the need for multifunctional delivery vectors capable of meeting these challenges.
