Electrostatic tuning: Parallel β-sheet assemblies at interfaces were obtained via designed complementary electrostatic interactions. A system composed of an equimolar mixture of two amphiphilic peptides PA (see picture) and PB, which are identical in sequence but for the two amino acids, lysine and glutamic acid, reversed in positions along the strands, demonstrates the prevailing effect of cross-strand pair electrostatic interactions on tuning the assembly of β-strands.
