Here, recombinant suckerin-19 is processed into biomaterials spanning a wide range of elasticity, from very soft hydrogels to stiff films with elastic modulus in the gigapascal range. The elasticity is controlled by the interplay between the β-sheet content and induced di-tyrosine crosslinking.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/98566
