    Sammanfattning : In the recent past, spider silk has drawn significant attention from researchers mainly due to its distinguished mechanical strength, elasticity, biocompatibility and biodegradability. Technological advancements in genetic engineering have resulted in methods for creation of partial spider silk proteins. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Mechanisms of native and artificial spinning of spider silk

    Författare :Marlene Andersson; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : Spider silk is tougher than all other known natural and man-made fibers, and represents an environmentally friendly material that could potentially be used for many different purposes, ranging from biomaterials to construction materials. However, for large-scale production of silk, methods to produce artificial silk fibers must be developed. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Of spiders, bugs, and men : Structural and functional studies of proteins involved in assembly
