Peptide-catalyzed, bioinspired silicification for single-cell encapsulation in the imidazole-buffered system

Author affiliations

Abstract

Inspired by biosilicification of glass sponges, we designed a catalytic peptide, which formed silica structures in the imidazole-buffered solution. The peptide was adsorbed selectively onto the surface of yeast cells, and the bioinspired silicification led to the formation of a cytoprotective silica shell on individual yeast cells.
