Some Random and Some Not-So-Random Experiments
With Self-Assembling Systems
I will describe three projects at the early stages of development that will have, as a common topic, practical applications of self-assembling systems:(1) A hexa-peptide that can serve as an MRI contrast agent with exceptionally high relaxivity; (2) a small molecule that dimerizes in an active site of a covalently inhibited enzyme; and (3) two oligonucleotides that form a complex when one of them senses a small molecule ligand.
