A popular strategy to control cellular growth and differentiation is the employment of self-assembling peptides as biomaterials. In this study we decorated ultrashort helical N-acetylated β-tripeptides with cell adhesion signals IKVAV and RGD, which spontaneously self-assemble to give nanofibres with multiple signals, and form a bioscaffold that supports the growth of cells.
