Abstract

Watson-Crick interactions: The conjugation of nucleobases (B=thymine, adenine, cytosine, and guanine; see picture) with small peptides affords a novel kind of supramolecular nanofibers and hydrogelators, which exhibit a high biocompatibility and biostability and are regarded as promising new biomaterials.
