Building a Better Nanocarrier
Branched Amphipathic Peptide Capsules (BAPC) are nanospheres made from an equimolar mixture of two branched peptides:  bis(Ac-FLIVIGSII)-K-K4-CO-NH2 and bis(Ac-FLIVI)-K-K4-CO-NH2. These peptides self-assemble to form solvent-filled, bilayer defined capsules and originate from one of the pore-forming segments of the human heart…
