Abstract

The binding of a guest (metal ion, M+) to a single host molecule (peptide) was studied by the measurement of the conductance of the peptide (see picture). The conductance of the peptide in the metal-peptide complexes increases by an amount that is dependent on the sequence and the length of the host.
