An analysis of the published data of the electrophoresis of the products of silk fibroin exhibiting discontinuities or pauses in the translational process showed that about 60 times of pauses occur during the translation of the mRNA from silk fibroin. In addition, we estimated that silk fibroin gene as a whole (15 kb) is composed of about 60 alternate… (More)
