Engineered 2D Protein Lattice

Proteins found in nature provide many examples of catalytic and transport processes that are useful on an industrial scale. Current industrial applications of proteins include enzymes used in cleaning applications, chemical synthesis, and the food industry. Most current applications utilize industrial enzymes in solution or immobilized on resin beds to allow easy separation of reaction products. Important applications that are currently unaddressed include processes that involve cofactor-dependent oxidoreduction reactions or vectorial transport across barriers. Examples of the former include photosynthetic water splitting, while vectorial transport processes include applications such as CO2 fixation and water desalinization.

Imiplex’s
TriPol structural architecture for 2-dimensional array formation is designed to form an ordered substrate allowing the assembly of wide variety engineered nanostructures supporting functional protein domains in precise relative geometry and orientation on substrate surfaces.
