    ..Compared with wild-type silk, the recombinant silk displayed a higher tensile strength and elasticity. The results indicate the potential for producing recombinant spider silk in transgenic B. mori...

    ..Therefore, focusing on the cases in lineages of familial breast cancer, rather than pooled cases in disease population, is expected to provide high probability to identify the genetic predisposition for each family...

    Fengxia Xiao
    Department of Genetics, Cell Biology and Anatomy, Omaha, NE 68198, USA
    BMC Cancer 14:342. 2014
    ..While BRCA1+ induces breast cancer by causing genome instability, most of the knowledge is known about somatic genome instability in breast cancer cells but not germline genome instability...

    Mol Biol Rep 37:2885-92. 2010
    ..The H-fibroin of S. marmorata is about 400-500 kDa and expressed in both the middle and posterior silk glands, which is different from the expression pattern in Lepidoptera species...
