Although silk sericin (SS) enhances the growth and attachment of fibroblast cells, its toxicity remains questionable. We investigated the effect of SS extracted by heat with variable amino-acid content on in vitro collagen promotion and nitric oxide synthesis. After 24 h of incubation, SS, especially from the Chul 1/1 strain which has the most methionine and cysteine content, enhanced fibroblast growth. The molecular mass of heat-extracted SS from these three strains showed a slightly different… Expand
