Protein nanofibres of defined morphology prepared from mixtures of crude crystallins

Garvey, Megan; Gras, Sally L.; Meehan, Sarah; Meade, S.J.; Carver, John; Gerrard, Juliet A.


Self assembling protein nanofibres have great potential within the nanotechnology industry. To realise this potential, nanofibres need to be manufactured on a commercial scale. To date, amyloid fibrils, a form of protein nanofibre with desirable bionanotechnological properties, have only been produced using expensive and time-costly, small-scale methods. This paper describes the production of protein nanofibres from semi-pure and crude mixtures of bovine crystallin proteins, currently a waste...[Show more]
