Abstract

Hypothesis: Self-assembling protein subunits hold great potential as biomaterials with improved functions. Among the self-assembled protein structures functional amyloids are promising unique properties such as resistance to harsh physical and chemical conditions their mechanical strength, and ease of functionalization. Curli proteins, which are functional amyloids of bacterial biofilms can be programmed as intelligent biomaterials.
