This project investigates the effects of the precursor and PGG concentration on the coacervation kinetics for three different types of polypeptides: Elastin ES12, Alpha-Elastin AE17, and Elastin-Opcein E154. The objects of this set of experiments are 1) to compare the coacervation kinetics for different concentrations of tropoelastin proteins; 2) to compare the coacervation kinetics with the PGG addition in different concentrations.
