... of major ampullate silk were first collected from restrained Nephila clavipes (Linnaeus 1776) and adhered to cardboard mounts across 21 mm gaps, as described previously( Blackledge et al., 2005b ). The diameters of fibers were then measured to the nearest 0.1μm using polarized light microscopy...

... viscoelastic polymers (Figs 1 and 2 ). Stress initially increased linearly for the first 1–2% strain until fiber yield began. The yield sometimes consisted of little more than a slight decrease in the slope of the stress-strain curve for major ampullate silk, whereas by contrast, stress often decreased...

...-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...
