Abstract

This work illustrates a series of novel peptides that have the capability to bind Zn2+ ions and to produce fibrillar structures. The location and the type of the residues along the peptide sequence can determine the nature of the fibril. This work presents a proof-of-concept milestone for designing peptides with different properties to produce diverse materials. This journal is
