  1. 1. Engineering Vascularized Skin Tissue in a 3D format supported by Recombinant Spider Silk

    University essay from KTH/Proteinteknologi

    Author : Savvini Gkouma; [2020]
    Keywords : skin; BSE; bilayered skin tissue equivalent; 3D; in vitro; model; vascularized; recombinant spider silk; FN-4RepCT; dermis; epidermis;

    Abstract : Skin is an organ with a complex structure which plays a crucial role in thebody’s defence against external threats and in maintaining major homeostatic functions. The need for in vitro models that mimic the in vivo milieu is therefore high and relevant with various applications including, among others, penetration, absorption, and toxicity studies. READ MORE

  2. 2. Recombinant spider silk with antimicrobial properties

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Institutionen för fysik, kemi och biologiLinköpings universitet/Tekniska högskolan

    Author : Linnea Nilebäck; [2013]
    Keywords : Spider silk; antimicrobial peptides; bactericidal enzymes; recombinant production; antibacterial assays; Spindeltråd; antimikrobiella peptider; antibakteriella enzymer; rekombinant produktion; antibakteriella analyser;

    Abstract : Immobilizing antimicrobial substances onto biocompatible materials is an important approach for the design of novel, functionalized medical devices. By choosing antimicrobial substances from innate immune systems, the risk for development of resistance in pathogenic microbes is lower than if conventional antibiotics are used. READ MORE

  3. 3. Blood compatibility of biomaterials made of recombinant spider silk

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Anatomy, Physiology and Biochemistry

    Author : Michael Segall; [2013]
    Keywords : recombinant spider silk; biomaterials; blood compatibility; heparin; albumin; 4RepCT; coating; rekombinant spindeltråd; biomaterial; blodkompatibilitet; beläggning;

    Abstract : Native spider silk is an attractive lightweight natural polymeric material with a unique combination of strength, extendibility and flexibility. Synthetic, recombinant spider silk is an attractive biomaterial with several possible fields of application. READ MORE

  4. 4. Laminin motifs inserted into a recombinantspider drag-line silk protein increase theproliferation of human dermal fibroblasts

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Anatomy, Physiology and Biochemistry

    Author : Carl-Olof Hillerdal; [2009]
    Keywords : 4repCt; Spider dragline silk; RGD; YISGR; IKVAV; extracellular matrix; fibroblasts; biomaterial; laminin;

    Abstract : Spider silk is a promising biomaterial. It is highly biocompatible, non-toxic, most likely naturally degraded by the host organism over time and strong and resilient. Importantly, it consists of proteins and new motifs can relatively easily be added. READ MORE
