AbstractShort-peptide supramolecular (SPS) hydrogels are a class of materials that have been found to be useful for (bio)technological applications thanks to their biocompatible nature. Among the advantages reported for these peptides, their economic affordability and easy functionalization or modulation have turned them into excellent candidates for the development of functional biomaterials. We have recently demonstrated that SPS hydrogels can be used to produce high-quality protein crystals, improve their properties, or incorporate relevant materials within the crystals. In this work, we prove that hydrogels based on methionine and tyrosine are also good candidates for growing high-quality crystals of the three model proteins: lysozyme, glucose isomerase, and thaumatin.
