Abstract

(Figure Presented) It's the way that you do it: Block polymers composed of elastin (E) and COMPcc (C) domains (see figure) have been synthesised and characterised. The protein motifs were chosen for their structures and distinct self-assembly modes. We demonstrate that the micro- and macrostructures of the polymers are dictated by the orientation of the fusions and the number of repeated blocks.
