Effects of Interfacial Redox in Mussel Adhesive Protein Films on Mica

Authors


Abstract

Formation of dehydrodopa in an adhesive mussel foot protein (mfp3) during autoxidation or periodate-mediated oxidation influences film thickness on mica in the surface forces apparatus (SFA). Dehydrodopa-dependent protein conformations in mussel plaque may enable different packing modes that are reversible.
