pH-Responsive Self-Assembly of Amyloid Fibrils for Dual Hydrolase-Oxidase Reactions

In this work we designed de novo short peptides containing only His and Tyr residues in a binary pattern to form biocompatible amyloid-like nanofibers that act as enzyme mimetics and exhibit two different and unrelated catalytic activities. See all results at ACS … Continue reading
