Peptide nanotubes mould silver nanowires

Abstract:
Scientists at Tel Aviv University have used self-assembled peptide nanotubes as a mould for casting silver nanowires. They discovered the self-assembly of the nanotubes while researching the formation of amyloid fibrils from proteins, a key factor in human diseases such as Alzheimer's, type II diabetes and prion diseases.
