Here we describe a novel electrochemical biosensing platform based on biocompatible, well-ordered, self-assembled diphenylalanine peptide nanotubes. Voltammetric and time-based amperometric techniques were applied to demonstrate the ability of the peptide nanotubes to improve the electrochemical parameters of graphite electrodes. The findings clearly show that this novel class of peptide nanotubes provides an attractive component for future electroanalytical devices.
