1 The concentration dependence of the pressure- and temperature-induced cloud point transition (Pc and Tc, respectively) of aqueous solutions of an elastin-like polypeptide with a repeating pentapeptide Val-Pro-Gly-Ile-Gly sequence (MGLDGSMG(VPGIG)40VPLE) was investigated by using apparent light scattering, differential scanning calorimetry, and circular dichroism methods.
