  • elastin, lamprin and myxinin (comparative study of non-collagen based carilages)
  • microfibrils and role in elasticity of arteries
  • abductin (provides passive but rapid and efficient opening of scallop shells)
  • swimming mechanisms of scallops and squid
  • fast-start performance of fish when escaping predators
