Chorion, the major component of silkmoth eggshell, consists of the A and B classes of low-molecular weight structural proteins. Chorion protects the oocyte and the developing embryo from environmental hazards and this is due to the extraordinary physical and chemical properties of its constituent proteins. We have shown previously [FEBS Lett. 479 (2000) 141; 499 (2001) 268] that peptide-analogues of the A and B classes of chorion proteins form amyloid fibrils under a variety of conditions… CONTINUE READING
