Aqueous-based spinning of fibers from self-assembling structural proteins.

Abstract

There has been long-standing interest in generating fibers from structural proteins and a great deal of work has been done in attempting to mimic dragline spider silk. Dragline silk balances stiffness, strength, extensibility, and high energy to break. Mimicking these properties through aqueous-based spinning of recombinant silk protein is a significant… (More)
