Surface nucleated growth of dipeptide fibres

Author affiliations


We report the surface nucleated growth of self-assembled dipeptide films. The seeding-layer was a thin dipeptide film with a globular structure. Placing the seeding-layer in contact with dipeptide led to growth of fibres overnight. Active enzymes were incorporated into the gel by adding them to the growth solution.
