Abstract:

Spider silk proteins from major and minor ampullate silk have been sequenced via their cDNAs. One of the proteins from major ampullate silk has been expressed in bacteria to levels of 10-20 mgmL. Studies using fiber X-ray diffraction and solid state NMR have been used to study the structure of the proteins in the fiber. Spider, Silk, Proteins, Expression, X-ray diffraction NMR.
