Spider silk is a novel material with high strength and toughness and is lightweight, making it attractive for high-performance fiber and biomedical applications. The amino acid sequence and molecular architecture of spider silk protein are becoming known gradually with science and technology development. However, its relationship of structure and function is a puzzle which attracts materials scientists to unveil it. In this study we investigated the changes of the crystal structure as a result… CONTINUE READING
