Mussel-inspired chimeric protein as a novel facile antifouling coating

Abstract

A mussel-inspired chimeric protein as a multifunctional coating was engineered rationally and applied in antifouling. The 3,4-dihydroxyphenyl-alanine (Dopa) and zwitterionic peptides inspired from the molecular chaperones were incorporated into the designed protein. The multifunctional protein coating can anchor onto various substrates surfaces readily and exhibit superior antifouling properties.
