... ( Table 2A vs Table 3A ) and with those of post-treatment CD and FD silk ( Table 3A vs Table 3B ); however, these variations did not influence our results. Table 2. Mean (±s.e.m.) percentages of major amino acids in major ampullate silks collected prior to the experiments from Nephila pilipes...

... progressively heavier weights (2–100 mg) were suspended from 30–40 mm long fibers of major ampullate silk that were mounted within the environmental chamber. Weights were constructed from pipette tips and secured using cyanoacrylate adhesive. Clear acetate was used to provide a window in the chamber through...

... of the stress-strain curve for major ampullate silk, whereas by contrast, stress often decreased during yield for aciniform and minor ampullate silk. Tubuliform fibers always displayed a distinct yield region characterized by a strong decrease in the slope of the stress-strain curve, although never below...

...-weaving spider Latrodectus hesperus . Both silk from the scaffolding region of the web and sticky gumfooted capture lines had material properties similar to the major ampullate silk that orb weavers use as the framework for their orb webs. Major ampullate fibers obtained from anaesthetized Latrodectus...
