• Silk
  • Spider silk basically consists of fibrous proteins called 'spidroins' (spider fibroins). (arages.de)
  • Abstract: This paper was concerned with the effects of ultrasonication on the gelation behavior of silk fibroins (SF), and a comparison of Domestic and Wild silkworms was studied. (scientific.net)
  • The scaffold made by mixing mulberry and non-mulberry silk fibroins showed enhanced liver-specific functions. (journosdiary.com)
  • In studies carried out in petri dishes in the lab, the researchers found that the scaffold made from mixing mulberry and non-mulberry silk fibroins showed enhanced liver-specific functions. (journosdiary.com)
  • Besides being metabolically active, gene expression studies and functionality tests demonstrated that optimal-sized (less than 100 micrometre) liver clusters formed on the scaffold maintained liver-specific functions for 21 days compared with scaffolds made of mulberry and non-mulberry silk fibroins.

  • The researchers tested scaffolds made of mulberry and non-mulberry silk fibroins and a blend of the two silk varieties in petri dishes in the lab and in animal models. (journosdiary.com)
  • Being a structural protein, the mulberry silk fibroins render strength to the 3D scaffold. (journosdiary.com)
  • Little has been reported on aqueous silk molecules in black widow spider silk, which are quite different from the large water insoluble core fibroins. (pacific.edu)
