Behavior of silk protein at the air-water interface

Abstract:

The inability to link silk biomacromolecules' activity to their self-assembly and further fiber formation has limited a true implementation of a silk biotechnology. In this paper, we describe the application of video-enhanced drop shape analysis and interfacial shear rheological measurement to characterize the dynamic surface activity and interfacial interactions, as well as molecular structure within the interfacial layer of silk proteins. Quantitative analysis of the dynamic surface tension...
