Abstract in another language

Silks are a class of proteinaceous materials
produced by arthropods for various purposes. Spider dragline
silk is known for its outstanding mechanical properties, and it
shows high biocompatibility, good biodegradability, and a lack
of immunogenicity and allergenicity. The silk produced by the
mulberry silkworm B. mori has been used as a textile fiber and
in medical devices for a long time. Here, recent progress in the
processing of different silk materials into highly tailored
isotropic and anisotropic coatings for biomedical applications
such as tissue engineering, cell adhesion, and implant coatings
as well as for optics and biosensors is reviewed.
