Understanding Sequence Contributions to Peptoid–lipid Interactions: Using Peptoids as a Platform to Advance Multidisciplinary Research and Undergraduate Education in Parallel

submitted on 14.10.2018, 03:28 and posted on 15.10.2018, 17:58 by Christian Jimenez, Jiacheng Tan, Kalli M. Dowell, Gillian Gadbois, Cameron Read, Nicole Burgess, Jesse Cervantes, Shannon Chan, Animal Jandaur, Tara Karanik, Jaenic Lee, Mikaela Ley, Molly McGeehan, Ann McMonigal, Kira Palazzo, Samantha Parker, Andre Payman, Maritza Soria, Lauren Verheyden, Vivian Vo, Jennifer Yin, Anna L. Calkins, Amelia A. Fuller, Grace Stokes

The synthesis and fluorescence spectroscopy studies of 21 peptoids,

including 19 new tripeptoids, are described. Insight into sequence features that influence biophysical properties in the presence and absence of unilamellar lipid vesicles is provided. Concomitantly, we highlight the educational value of training undergraduates in multidisciplinary research using peptoid science.
