Abstract

The author describes, in a quite unconventional way, the most important results achieved in the last 50 years in the field of elastin structure–elasticity relationships, beginning with the first invaluable findings of Partridge on desmosines and isodesmosines until the most recent theories on elastomeric proteins. The author also relates a scientific autobiography characterized by his greatest passion, elastin.
