Peptide building blocks with self-assembly ability which could be regulated by a biological glucose metabolism were designed and synthesized. As the metabolic product, gluconic acid can trigger the protonation of peptide and induce phase transition. Because the glucose metabolism regulated self-assembly is based on the oxidation of glucose, it can be used as a visual biosensor for glucose detection.
