Bundle up: The introduction of streptavidin (as a linker) between two FeII(terpyridine–bis-biotin) connectors affords a one-dimensional metal–organic protein framework (MOPF). In the presence of calcium ions and CO2 vapors, these MOPF aggregates form protein bundles that template the biomineralization of calcite.
