Abstract

Excellent catalytic efficiency has been obtained within a series of self replicating peptides, and nucleobase inclusion into a salt-switchable self replicating peptide is found to override the switch. Interestingly, cross-catalytic formation of an RNA aptamer is reported with a cationic peptide, and novel, amide-based biopolymers have been designed to self assemble.
