Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Researchers show what drives a novel, ordered assembly of alternating peptides

(North Carolina State University) A team of researchers has verified that it is possible to engineer two-layered nanofibers consisting of an ordered row of alternating peptides, and has also determined what makes these peptides automatically assemble into this pattern. The fundamental discovery raises the possibility of creating tailored "ABAB" peptide nanofibers with a variety of biomedical applications.
