Abstract in another language

Along came a spider… Spider silk is a fascinating biomaterial owing to its strength, extensibility, and toughness per unit weight which is unrivaled by man-made fibers. The spinning of spider silk corresponds to a transition from a liquid phase to a solid thread. The underlying mechanism of this transition has been investigated using a recombinantly produced spider silk protein
