Abstract(s)Chinese nonmulberry temperate oak tasar/tussah, Antheraea pernyi (Ap) silk is a natural biopolymer that has attracted considerable attention as a biomaterial. The proteinaceous components of Ap silk proteins, namely fbroin and sericin may represent an alternative over mulberry Bombyx mori silk proteins. In fact, the silk fbroin (SF) of Ap is rich in Arginyl-Glycyl-Aspartic acid (RGD) peptides, which facilitate the adhesion and proliferation of various cell types. The possibility of processing Ap silk proteins into different distinct 2D- and 3D-based matrices is described in earlier studies, such as membranes, nanofbers, scaffolds, and micro/nanoparticles, contributing to a different rate of degradation, mechanical properties, and biological performance useful for various biomedical applications. This review summarizes the current advances and developments on nonmulberry Chinese oak tasar silk protein (fbroin and sericin)-based biomaterials and their potential uses in tissue engineering, regenerative medicine, and therapeutic delivery strategies.
