artificial viral capsid
Artificial construction of spherical protein assemblies has attracted considerable attention due to its potential use in nanocontainers, nanocarriers, and nanoreactors. In this work, we demonstrate a novel strategy to construct peptide nanocapsules (artificial viral capsids) decorated with enzymes via interactions between His-tag and Ni-NTA. A β-annulus peptide derived from the tomato bushy stunt virus was modified with Ni-NTA at the C-terminus, which is directed toward the exterior surface of the artificial viral capsid. The β-annulus peptide bearing Ni-NTA at the C-terminus self-assembled into capsids of about 50 nm in diameter. The Ni-NTA-displayed capsids were complexed with recombinant horseradish peroxidase (HRP) with a C-terminal His-tag which was expressed in Escherichia coli. The β-annulus peptide-HRP complex formed spherical assemblies whose sizes were 30–90 nm, with the ζ-potential revealing that the HRP was decorated on the outer surface of the capsid.
