Abstract:

Amino acid sequences that display the ability to bind to different metal substrates have been found by phage display library. Virus-like particles VLPs are protein shells that are capable of presenting multiple copies of single amino acid sequences through chemical modification of the VLP surface. This report describes efforts to assign gallium arsenide binding abilities to VLPs from the bacteriophage MS2 by chemically linking artificial metal binding peptides to the VLPs surfaces, then confirm the ability of the VLPs to bind gallium arsenide.
