Biomedical and biotechnological applications of Elastin-like polypeptides


Journal Article

Elastin-like polypeptides (ELPs) are a unique class of genetically encoded biopolymers with tunable thermosensitivity and biocompatibility. This review provides an introduction to ELPs and an overview of their design and synthesis. It also discusses applications of these polypeptides for drug delivery, tissue engineering, protein purification, and biosensing.
