Heparin as a Bundler in a Self-Assembled Fibrous Network of Functionalized Protein-Based Polymers.

Abstract

Nature shows excellent control over the mechanics of fibrous hydrogels by assembling protein fibers into bundles of well-defined dimensions. Yet, obtaining artificial materials displaying controlled bundling remains a challenge. Here, we developed genetically engineered protein-based polymers functionalized with heparin-binding KRSR domains and show… (More)
