Improving cell-adhesive properties of recombinant Bombyx mori silk by incorporation of collagen or fibronectin derived peptides produced by transgenic silkworms.


Silk of Bombyx mori can be used as various biomaterials. Especially, it is useful as a protein for coating the surface of cell culture plates since the silk possesses a biocompatibility to the cultured cells. However, the cell-adhesive ability is weaker than collagen or fibronectin, which are used for coating the plate more frequently (Yao et al. J. Biochem… (More)
