Access from EThOS:
Self-assembling peptides are currently attracting increasing interest as biological materials with a wide range of applications, including scaffolds for tissue engineering as well as drug delivery. The objective of the current work is to study the effect of amino acid size and charge distribution on the self-assembly and gelation behaviour of a series of de novo designed octapeptides.
