Bacterial surface layers (S-layers) represent the outermost cell envelope component in archaea and many bacteria. Many S-layer proteins can be extracted from the bacterial cell and their self assembly properties resulting in monomolecular crystalline lattices were used to coat and functionalize multi walled carbon nanotubes. The schematic drawing highlights the advantage of the S-layer technology: (Above) precisely arranged S-layer proteins (shown in orange) completely covering the CNT surface vs. (below) randomly bound biomolecules (e.g., BSA; shown in green). When used for binding further biomolecules (shown in blue), only S-layers provide a dense and precisely controlled packing. View this paper.
