Silk Fibroin: A Biomaterial with Unparalleled Potential

Silk Fibroin, the core structural protein in silk, is a product of the Bombyx mori (silkworm). This biopolymer is composed of light and heavy chains, held together by disulfide bonds. The repetitive sequences of amino acids in its structure, mainly glycine, alanine, and serine, contribute to its unique properties such as robustness, elasticity, and biocompatibility….
