Abstract Combinations of protein and carbohydrate scaffold, bovine serum albumin (BSA) and cassava starch, have been used as materials to fabricate 3D scaffolds using an in-house developed freeze-drying method. Using this method, the BSA/starch generated a stable foam-type scaffold while the BSA alone could not maintain a rigid structure. The albumin/starch scaffolds had a porous structure and indicated the secondary structures of protein in the Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) stu...

This research aims to utilize sericin, which is the waste from boiling silk cocoon, for the supramolecular scaffold preparation with chitosan. A suitable method for the self-assembled scaffold formation of sericin and chitosan at 1:1 stoichiometry is presented and the morphological and physical properties of the scaffold are studied. The effect of an alcohol/NaOH solution on the secondary structure of sericin protein within the sericin-chitosan scaffold, with adjusted pH, was investigated. Addit...
