A Novel Expression: Spider Silk Synthesized for Mechanical Improvements With Kevlar

Koryn Russell, Johnson & Wales University - Providence


This study examines spider silk proteins on the molecular level for the potential use of the components for a new mechanism. DNA on the molecular level is a fairly new innovation that has led to many researchers' abilities to synthesize and construct organic and inorganic materials. The resolution of design in synthetic material is used to create organic structures that allow for stronger use. A systematic review of previously collected protein in spider silk MaSp is analyzed and studied to assemble the necessary protein sequence for further synthesis. Key words such as amino acids, molecular analysis, and protein synthesis found in available spider silk proteins are used to find specific purifications and mechanisms for further production methods.
