Pleurotus ostreatus hydrophobins: surface active proteins

Annunziata Armenante
The pure protein from P. ostreatus, deposited on a silicon hydrophobic surface, forms a very stable biofilm, whereas the biofilm has not been detected on a oxidized silicon hydrophilic surface.  ...  On the other hand when the pure hydrophobin is dissolved in 60% ethanol, its self assembly is prevented.  ...  A hydrophobic solid surface can be converted to a hydrophilic one with a hydrophobin coating, and hydrophilic solid surface can be converted to a hydrophobic one by drying down a hydrophobin solution on  ...
