1. A protein polymer comprising from N- to C-terminus:
a coiled coil domain of cartilage oligomeric matrix protein (COMPcc) or a variant thereof selected from the group consisting of SEQ ID NOs: 3-14;
a linker sequence up to 30 amino acids, wherein the linker sequence comprises RGD and AT repeats and the RGD is directly N-terminal to the first AT repeat; and
an elastin-like peptide domain comprising the sequence [(VPGXG)2VPGXG(VPGXG)2]n (SEQ ID NO:30), wherein n can be from 2 to 24, and X is any amino acid other than proline,
wherein one or more leucine residues in the protein polymer are fluorinated.
