Molecular Electronics and Transistors based on Peptide Nanostructures

The TechnologyProprietary peptide nanostructures1 can be readily fabricated on various surfaces including electrodes2,4. A physical vapor deposition method (PVD) allows the precise control on the molecular dimensions of the structures using industry standard techniques. These nanostructures were used to fabricate metallic nanowires1 as well as trilayer metal-peptide-metal nano-cables3. Electrodes and storages devices were modified with […] Read More >


Protection of Oxygen-Sensitive-Enzymes by Peptide Hydrogel

Molecular oxygen (O2) is a highly reactive oxidizing agent harmful to many biological and industrial systems. A simple encapsulation in a protective aqueous environment of O2  -sensitive reactions is of need. Self-assembling peptide-based hydrogels are simple hydrogels that can be combined with a wide variety of reagents and are able to encage O2 and significantly limit its […] Read More >

Efficient information coding in living organisms

It is clear that DNA can be used as a storage medium, each nucleotide carrying two information bits, which can store vast amounts of data for very long periods of time and with high reliability; as overtime, humans remain human just as cats remain cats. However, it is also clear that it is a very […] Read More >

Prof. Gazit Ehud

The central dogma in the study of protein folding suggests that the thermodynamically-favorable state of proteins under physiological conditions is their folded one. However, there are number of cases in which the favorable states of proteins are rather unfolded, partially folded (e.g., “molten globular”), or misfolded (e.g., nonspecific aggregates or amyloid fibrils). These observations lead […] Read More >

Research Self-immolative dendrimers are unique structural molecules that can release all of their tail units, through a domino-like chain fragmentation, which is initiated by a single cleavage at the dendrimer’s core. Incorporation of drug molecules as the tail units and an enzyme substrate as the trigger, can generate a multi-prodrug unit that is activated with […] Read More >
