The term Sericin refers to a group of soluble glycoproteins expressed in the middle silk gland of Bombyx mori. Together with silk fibroin sericin is a component of the cocoon shell of the silkworm wrapped in its outer layer for adhesion and protection (Kundu et al. 2008). Several genes have been identified in Bombyx mori and other species (Craig and Riekel, 2002). These proteins cover the surface of fibroin, the silk filament core protein, in the cocoon filament.

Sericin S (sericin small), a preparation with a molecular weight of 5-100 kDa has been used as a cell culture supplement and accelerates cell proliferation of hybridoma cells in various serum-free media (Cao and Zhang, 2015). Sericin S also induces the proliferation of CTLL-2 cells under ... ... ... ... ... Subscribe to continue reading! ... ...
