The present study investigated the chemical properties and antityrosinase activities of SS (silk sericin) extracted from different Thai silk strains via various extraction methods. Different silk strains contain distinct SS with various amino acid compositions, which are significantly influenced by the extraction method used. Urea extraction of SS was the only method that provided clearly distinguishable bands and had the most significant impact on SS conformation as illustrated by FTIR… Expand
