50_28i/2011Inside Cover: Controlled Self-Assembly of Rodlike Bacterial Pili Particles into Ordered Lattices (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 28/2011)

Pili are rodlike nanoparticles protruding from bacterial cell surfaces. Once detached, they can form ordered assemblies, including 1D bundles, 2D double-layer lattices, and 3D multilayer lattices, with the help of inducer molecules. As described by C. Mao and co-workers in their Communication on page 6264 ff., the assemblies can be used as biotemplates to induce the formation and organization of other materials.
