Solid-state NMR evidence for elastin-like β-turn structure in spider dragline silk

Author affiliations

Abstract

Two-dimensional homo- and heteronuclear solid-state MAS NMR experiments on 13C/15N-proline labeled Argiope aurantia dragline silk provide evidence for an elastin-like β-turn structure for the repetitive Gly-Pro-Gly-X-X motif prevalent in major ampullate spidroin 2 (MaSp2).
