Self-assembly of a peptideamphiphile based on hydrolysed Bombyx mori silk fibroin

Author affiliations

Abstract

An octapeptide, GAGAGAGY, was obtained by a novel method, i.e. hydrolysing Bombyx mori silk fibroin. Afterward, a dodecanoic acid–peptide conjugation was synthesized. This amphiphile assembled into cylindrical nanofibers of planar β-sheets at pH 9 and twisted β-sheets at pH 4.
