Title: Influence of proteins extracted from tarantula spider silk on the survival of mesenchymal stem cells
The skin is the largest organ in the human body. The skin's main function is barrier, and it protects internal organs, so it accounts for the greatest amount of damage. Wound healing is a complex process involving the interaction of cells and matrixes with further formation of new tissue. In this paper, the effect of spidroins (spider silk proteins) on human mesenchymal cells is examined with the aim of further using this type of proteins in tissue engineering.
Audience Take Away Notes :
• The resulting work may be useful to researchers who use biopolymers in their work.
• A study was conducted on the natural silk web on the survival of human stem cells.
• The study is unique and provides insights into the potential of silkworm silk for medical applications.
• This work will provide new insights into the properties of silk and enable its use in medical dressings or healing solutions
