We report the rational design of a heterochiral hydrophobic tripeptide self-assembling into amphiphilic D-superstructures that yield a self-supportive hydrogel at physiological pH. The material endures cell culture conditions and sustains fibroblast proliferation. Tripeptide superstructures are thoroughly analysed by several techniques.

Design of a hydrophobic tripeptide that self-assembles into amphiphilic superstructures forming a hydrogel biomaterial

Abstract

We report the rational design of a heterochiral hydrophobic tripeptide self-assembling into amphiphilic D-superstructures that yield a self-supportive hydrogel at physiological pH. The material endures cell culture conditions and sustains fibroblast proliferation. Tripeptide superstructures are thoroughly analysed by several techniques.
