Abstract

Elastomeric proteins underlie the elasticity of natural adhesives, cell adhesion and muscle proteins. They also serve as structural materials with superb mechanical properties. Single molecule force spectroscopy has made it possible to directly probe the mechanical properties of elastomeric proteins at the single molecule level and revealed insights into… (More)
