Access from EThOS:
Self-assembling peptide systems provide a pathway for the formation of complex molecular assemblies from relatively simple designed molecules. Stimuli which have been used to trigger the self-assembly (SA) process in aqueous conditions include temperature, pH, ionic strength, and solvent exchange. Additionally, enzymes may be used to selectively control the self-assembly process; enzymes are uniquely chemo-, regio-, and enantioselective, and work naturally under mild conditions without disrupting biological Interactions.
