Herein we describe a designed protein building block whose self-assembly behaviour is dually gated by the redox state of disulphide bonds and the identity of exogenous metal ions. This protein construct is shown - through extensive structural and biophysical characterization - to access five distinct oligomeric states, exemplifying how the complex interplay between hydrophobic, metal-ligand, and reversible covalent interactions could be harnessed to obtain multiple, responsive protein architectures from a single building block.
