Meta-analysis reveals materiomic relationships in major ampullate silk across the spider phylogeny

Hamish Craig, Dakota Piorkowski, Michael Kasumovic, Shinichi Nakagawa & Sean Blamires
Spider Major Ampullate (MA) silk, with its combination of strength and extensibility, outperforms any synthetic equivalents. There is thus much interest in understanding its underlying materiome. While expression of the different silk proteins (spidroins) appears an integral component of silk performance, our understanding of the nature of the relationship between the spidroins, their constituent amino acids, and MA silk mechanics is ambiguous. To provide clarity on these relationships across spider species we performed a meta-analysis...
