Peptide-based hydrogen sulphide-releasing gels

Author affiliations


An aromatic peptide amphiphile was designed for delivery of the signaling gas H2S. The peptide self-assembled in water into nanofibers that gelled upon charge screening. The non-toxic gel slowly released H2S over 15 hours, and the presence of H2S in endothelial cells was verified using a fluorescent H2S probe.
