A Minimalistic Hydrolase Based on Co-Assembled Cyclic Dipeptides

preprint
submitted on 30.09.2019 and posted on 01.10.2019 by Alexander Kleinsmann, Boris Nachtsheim
This paper describes minimalistic cyclic dipeptides acting as esterase-mimicks in a self-assembled hydrogel state. It demonstrates that cyclic dipeptides could have acted as enzyme-precursors on a primordial earth and hence be important for abiogenesis.
