Elastomeric proteins are able to withstand significant deformations without rupture before returning to their original state when the stress is removed. Although elastomeric proteins differ considerably in their amino acid sequence, they all have a complex domain structure and share two common properties. Namely, they contain elastomeric domains, comprised of repeated sequences, and additional domains that form intermolecular crosslinks. Furthermore, several protein contain beta-turns as a… CONTINUE READING
