Synthetic peptide materials for joint reconstruction, repair and cushioning

Image Number 3 for United States Patent #8119598.

In joint reconstruction, repair and cushioning applications, a synthetic polypeptide material is useful that contains cross-linked polypeptides that are modeled on human elastin or other fibrous proteins. The polypeptides comprise at least three consecutive beta-sheet/beta-turn structures and at least one amino acid residue that participates in cross-linking.
