Abstract

The evaporation of a lysozyme solution drop containing Ca 2+ ions on a superhydrophobic poly(methyl methacrylate) surface was probed by X-ray microbeam raster-diffraction. We observe the rapid deposition of fibrillar lysozyme with amyloidic cross-β structure at the interface of the drop with the substrate under conditions of weak acidity, close to physiological.
