Protein yoctowell nanoarchitectures: assembly of donut shaped protein containers and nanofibres

Author affiliations

Abstract

Proteins able to form “donut shaped” assemblies have been expressed in Escherichia coli and used for reversible in vitro assembly of cylindrical yoctowells (yoctolitre: 1 yL = 10−24 L). Their assembly and disassembly were studied spectroscopically and fibres ranging from molecular to multibundle structures have been assembled.
