A star attraction: The electrostatic interactions between aromatic amino acid side chains having opposite quadrupole moments are sufficient to introduce specificity into peptide binding interactions. The demonstration of this principle expands the repertoire of chemical tools that can be used to engineer specific peptide–peptide interactions, thus paving the way to new functional assemblies.
