Scholarcy highlights

  • We report a simple approach to modulate the electron transport band gap of protein by doping other molecule
  • The doping was first confirmed by both the theoretical simulation and experimental characterization, which demonstrated the formation of the TPY–BSA complex with the TPY positioned inside a hydrophobic cavity at subdomain IIA of BSA
  • The results presented in this work may provide a general approach to regulate protein ETp band gaps with wide variability by preselecting the doping molecule
  • The doped protein may further serve as a suitable material for configuring nanoscale solid-state bioelectronic devices
