Advances in the treatment of muscles and veins with spider webs
Cologne, Germany: Spider webs have been successfully used to repair and develop nerves, veins and muscles.
The spider web is a great masterpiece of nature which is free from toxic effects, free from germs and is very biologically homogeneous.
Thomas Schule, of the University of Byrne in Germany, has undergone genetic engineering for a genus of spider webs. In this way a very standard web was obtained which could convert proteins. Scientists wanted to somehow use the spider’s web to develop nerve cells.
For this, scientists have undergone biotechnology in the natural web, after which two different types of proteins have been added and their quantity and effectiveness have been increased. One side of the spider’s web fibers was replaced with a single amino acid. As a result, the total charge of the protein changed from negative to positive. In this way the surface became more attractive to the cells.
Now the amino acid cysteine has been added to the other side of the spider’s web. After that, if any object is attached to it, then the reaction in it increases.
By electro-spinning on both sides of the web, experts have made the protein an electric field, and gold nanoparticles have been added to it.
Subsequent experiments with spider webs on the cells have yielded very promising results.
