Abstract

We report a one-pot biological approach to fabricate gold nanoparticle (AuNP)-ZZ domain conjugates using peptide-functionalized proteins that can simultaneously direct both biomineralization and surface modification of AuNPs. In addition, immuno-AuNPs are readily prepared through the specific binding of antibodies to the ZZ domain on the AuNPs.
