(Chemical Equation Presented) The synthesis and characterization of a new leucine-zipper dendrimer (LZD) is reported that displays four copies of the peptide corresponding to the coiled-coiled dimerization domain of Fos. Circular dichroism spectroscopy, fluorescence titration, and sedimentation equilibrium experiments demonstrate that Fos-LZD can noncovalently assemble four copies of the peptide corresponding to the coiled-coil domain of Jun. This work provides the basis for the future construction of noncovalently assembled multivalent protein assemblies displaying any protein of interest.
