A nonamer peptide containing a diene group in the center of the sequence was synthesized. When the peptide forms an antiparallel β-sheet, the diene groups align ca. 5 Å apart on the β-sheet. The diene groups successfully photopolymerized without distorting the β-sheet structure. The obtained β-sheet showed high stability against acid denaturation and addition of 1,1,1,3,3,3-hexafluoroisopropanol.
