Micro/nanometer protein fibers are fundamental building blocks of extra-/intracellular matrices, providing structural support, stability and protection to cells, tissue and organism [1]. Fabricating performance protein micro/nanofibers has been extensively pursued for a variety of biomedical application. In this study, silk-elastinlike protein (SELP) polymer will be electrospun into nanofibers as a biomaterial.
