The oligohistidine affinity tag (His6-tag) is successfully interfaced with single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs), affording multifunctional biomimetic His6-tagSWNTs nanoconstructs. By virtue of the encoded specific His6 information sequence, the versatility of the nanohybrids is demonstrated in the realization of controllable spatial supramolecular architectures and nanocomposites built from the bottom up, through hierarchical directed self-assemblies induced by b-sheets, metal coordination, and covalent bond interactions.
