Preliminary studies have shown that silk fibroin can protect biomacromolecules from thermal degradation, but a deeper understanding of underlying mechanisms needed to fully leverage the stabilizing potential of this matrix has not been realized. In this study, we investigate stabilization of plasma C-reactive protein (CRP), a diagnostic indicator of… CONTINUE READING
