Self-assembly of ferritin nanocages into linear chains induced by poly(α, L-lysine)

Author affiliations

Abstract

The widespread occurrence of protein channels offers a good opportunity to fabricate protein architectures. Herein, we have developed a novel strategy for linear self-assembly of ferritin cages induced by poly(α, L-lysine) through channel-directed electrostatic interactions at pH 7.0. The length of the formed filaments can be controlled.
