Cooperative, ion-sensitive co-assembly of tripeptide hydrogels

Author affiliations

Abstract

Peptide co-assembly is of interest for the development of functional supramolecular biomaterials. Herein, computational simulations were combined with experimental validation to aid the design and understanding of cooperative co-assembly of a structure-forming tripeptide (FFD) and a functional copper-binding tripeptide (GHK) leading to hydrogel formation in response to complexation with copper ions.
