These results demonstrate that silkworms can be engineered to manufacture composite silk fibers containing stably integrated spider silk
protein sequences, which significantly improve the overall mechanical properties of the parental silkworm silk fibers.
Scientists have been jazzing up spider silk
Within this new, state-of-the-art facility, Utah State will begin the process of producing synthetic spider silk
and other biosynthetic materials in quantities that have not yet been achieved, which will enable commercial partners to take advantage of years of USU faculty research on new biomaterials that can be used for a wide variety of applications," says H.
used spider silk
to form nano- and micro-capsules for in vivo applications.
These terminal regions of the proteins are unique to spider silk
and are very similar between different spiders.
These changes are triggered by an acidity (pH) gradient present between one end of the spider silk
gland (the 'N-terminal domain') and the other (the 'C-terminal domain').
The coating consists of a thin layer of spider silk
proteins manufactured by the company.
