Abstract

Available online at www.sciencedirect.com ScienceDirect Modular protein domains: an engineering approach toward functional biomaterials 1 1,2 Charng-Yu Lin and Julie C Liu Protein domains and peptide sequences are a powerful tool (PEG) [4], or with natural polymers, such as polysaccharides for conferring specific functions to engineered biomaterials. [5]. 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. Protein domains can be combined to make production of recombinant proteins. Furthermore, matu- recombinant proteins with multiple functionalities.
