Monodisperse dendronized protein polymers (DPPs), cylindrical dendrimers containing protein core, can be efficiently produced through a combined modular biosynthetic strategy. These DPP materials possess predictable size, shape, and solubility. In organic solutions, the DPPs self-assemble to form highly ordered liquid crystalline structures with nanoscale order controlled by their exact molecular dimensions.
