In this review, we focus on biomaterials utilizing protein Protein sequences with a wide variety of functionalities, domains or peptide sequences in recombinant proteins or including structure, bioactivity, protein–protein interactions, composite materials. and stimuli responsiveness, have been identified, and advances in molecular biology continue to pinpoint new Progress in molecular biology has enabled the facile sequences.
