1 Its soluble precursor (tropoelastin) has two major types of alternating domains: (1) hydrophilic cross-linked domains rich in Lys and Ala and (2) hydrophobic domains (responsible for elasticity) rich in Val, Pro, and Gly, which often occur in repeats of VPGVG or VGGVG. Glycine elastin Homo sapiens
