- Self-assembly of protein nanocages into two-dimensional superlattices can be achieved by disulfide-mediated modular interactions, which can be carried out by introducing single point mutation on the exterior surfaces of the protein nanocages nearby the symmetry rotation axes. As designed, the protein cages arrange in an on-axis alignment pattern.
