When provoked, the Australian fossorial frog Notaden bennettii secretes from its dorsal skin an exudate which rapidly forms a tacky elastic hydrogel. This protein-based material acts as a promiscuous pressure-sensitive adhesive which works even in wet conditions. The largest protein, Nb-1R, is rich in Gly, Pro/Hyp and Glx and appears to be the key structural component; it probably contains extensive segments of intrinsic disorder along with some well-folded domains. Indeed, the material… Expand
