Mussel-glue inspired adhesives: A study on the relevance of L-Dopa and the function of the sequence at nanomaterial-peptide interfaces

  • Mussel glue‐proteins undergo structural transitions at material interfaces to optimize adhesive surface contacts. Those intriguing structure responses are mimicked by a mussel‐glue mimetic peptide (HSY*SGWSPY*RSG (Y* = l‐Dopa)) that was previously selected by phage‐display to adhere to Al2O3 after enzymatic activation. Molecular level insights into the full‐length adhesion domain at Al2O3 surfaces are provided by a divergent‐convergent analysis, combining nuclear Overhauser enhancement based 2D NOESY and saturation transfer difference NMR analysis of submotifs along with molecular dynamics simulations of the full‐length peptide. The peptide is divided into two submotifs, each containing one Dopa “anchor” (Motif‐1 and 2). The analysis proves Motif‐1 to constitute a dynamic Al2O3 binder and adopting an “M”‐structure with multiple surface contacts. Motif‐2 binds stronger by two surface contacts, forming a compact “C”‐structure. Taking these datasets as constraints enables to predict the structure and propose a binding process model of the full‐length peptide adhering to Al2O3.
