Abstract

The use of Barnacle underwater adhesive protein for the development of peptide-based material design was discussed. The cement protein(cp)-20k was characterized by charged amino acids, which was amplified from Balanus albicostatus by using PCR based technique.Primary structures of cp-20k from Megabalanus rosa and B.albicostatus were composed of 6 and 4 repetitions by the alignment of Cys residues. The peptides had threshold in the self-assembly in near 0.5 M of NaCl concentration.
