A convenient method to prepare supramolecular bioconjugates in a facile and scalable manner is by a modular approach, whereby self-assembling units and peptides are coupled using oxime chemistry. We here report syntheses of bioactive ureidopyrimidinone-based peptide conjugates, and their resultant self-assembly into fibrous structures.
