Composite Electrospun Scaffold Derived from Recombinant Fibroin of Weaver Ant (Oecophylla smaragdina) as Cell-Substratum.

Abstract

Unlike silkworm (Bombyx mori) fibroin (SF), weaver ant (Oecophylla smaragdina) fibroin (WAF) is much less studied. Due to differences in amino acid composition and protein structure, this work aimed to produce the recombinant WAF protein, designated as WAF1, and investigated on its potential application as a biomaterial for producing a cell-substratum.
