Recent research progress of elastin-like polypeptides(ELPs) in temperature-responsive supramolecular structures is summarized systematically. The unique advantages of temperature controlled phase transition of elastin in the construction of supramolecular assembly are discussed and the sequence sensitivity of ELPs nanostructures is also demonstrated. Finally, the application of ELPs in supramolecular assembly in the future is prospected.
