Impact of C-Terminal Chemistry on Self-Assembled Morphology of Guanosine Containing Nucleopeptides.

ABSTRACT: Herein, we report the design and characterization of guanosine-containing self-assembling nucleopeptides that form nanosheets and nanofibers. Through spectroscopy and microscopy analysis, we propose that the peptide component of the nucleopeptide drives the assembly into ?-sheet structures with hydrogen-bonded guanosine forming additional secondary structures cooperatively within the peptide framework. Interestingly, the distinct supramolecular morphologies are driven not by metal cation responsiveness common to guanine-based materials, but by the C-terminal peptide chemistry. This work highlights the structural diversity of self-assembling nucleopeptides and will help advance the development of applications for these supramolecular guanosine-containing nucleopeptides.
