Integrative and intermediate self-assembly of multi-walled hybrid nanotubes for catanionic biomimetics.


PMID 22022703

Abstract

Hollow cylindrical multi-walled hybrid nanotubes go through dynamic growth and subsequent disappearance during the biomimetic fabrication of hexagonal calcite platelets, simulating the in vivo purpose-driven self-assembly of tubular plasma-membrane calcium-ion channels for biomaterials to adapt, respond and repair.
