摘要

Caddisfly larva produce adhesive silk fibers used to build protective shelters underwater. The silk has been adapted to work underwater by natural selection from dry terrestial silk. As part of a larger effort in our lab, the chemistry and structure of caddisfly silks are being studied to guide efforts to create synthetic underwater adhesive fibers and fabrics, particularly for use in medicine.
