Peptides

A series of cryo scanning electron microscope images recorded of a 0.05 weight percentage surfactant-like peptide (Ala)9-Arg emulsion. These micrographs were published in a paper investigating arginine-rich surfactant-like peptides that show antimicrobial activities in the journal of applied materials and interfaces. The research was conducted in collaboration with a group in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Reading and the Nanomicroscopy Center at Aalto University. The images were captured using the FEI Quanta 600 FEG SEM by Amanpreet Kaur and Valeria Castelletto.
