48_07b/2009Inside Cover: Self-Assembly of One- and Two-Dimensional Hemoprotein Systems by Polymerization through Heme–Heme Pocket Interactions (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 7/2009)

Supramolecular protein polymers consisting of cytochrome b562 monomers with heme covalently attached to the protein surface are presented by T. Hayashi and co-workers in their Communication on page 1271 ff. Not only one-dimensional hemoprotein fibers with submicrometer lengths have been prepared, but when a heme triad was added as a pivot molecule, two-dimensional protein assembly networks resulted, which cover over 100 square micrometers.
