Effect of Surface Structure on Peptide Adsorption on Soft Surfaces
Preprints are manuscripts made publicly available before they have been submitted for formal peer review and publication. They might contain new research findings or data. Preprints can be a draft or final version of an author's research but must not have been accepted for publication at the time of submission.
Using molecular dynamics simulations the adsorption of peptides onto nanostructured surfaces, consisting of alternating hydrophilic-hydrophobic stripes, was investigated. The adsorption strength, calculated using metadynamics, was found to decrease as the stripe width gets smaller.
