Abstract Natural protection offered to living beings is the result of millions of years of biological revolution. The protections provided in fishes, armadillos, and turtles by unique hierarchal designs help them to survive in surrounding environments. Natural armors offer protections with outstanding mechanical properties, such as high penetration resistance and toughness to weight ratio. The mechanical properties are not the only key features that make scales unique; they are also highly flexi...

A decalcified sponge-like nitrogen-doped porous carbon (DFSC) derived from fish scales has been synthesized via decalcification, pre-carbonization, and KOH activation processes. The synthesized carbon possesses high surface area of 2520.9 m2 g−1, large pore volume of 1.40 cm3 g−1, moderate nitrogen content, and hierarchical porous structure, which was used to prepare DFSC/S composite as cathode material in lithium-sulfur (Li-S) batteries. The DFSC/S composite delivered a better discharge specifi...

The junction between the epithelium and the underlying connective tissue undulates, constituting of rete ridges, which lack currently available soft tissue constructs. In this study, using a micro electro mechanical systems process and soft lithography, fifteen negative molds, with different dimensions and aspect ratios in grid- and pillar-type configurations, were designed and fabricated to create three-dimensional micropatterns and replicated onto fish-scale type I collagen scaffolds treated w...

Abstract We report herein new nanofibers prepared from fish scale gelatine (FSG), modified polylactide (MPLA), and a natural antibacterial agent of freshwater clam (Corbicula fluminea Estefania) shell powder (FCSP). A preparation of FSG from Mullet scales is also described. To improve the biocompatibility and antibacterial activity of the non-woven nanofibers, MPLA/FCSP was added to enhance their antibacterial properties. FSG was then combined with MPLA/FCSP using an electrospinning technique to...

Acute full-thickness wounds require a more extended healing period, thus increasing the risk of infection. Severe infection frequently resulted in wound ulceration, necrosis, and even life-threatening complications. Here, a hybrid hydrogel comprising aminated collagen (AC), oxidized sodium alginate (OSA), and antimicrobial peptides (polymyxin B sulfate and bacitracin) was developed to enhance full-thickness wound healing. The AC with low immunogenicity and high biocompatibility was made from mar...

The random discharge of marine fish waste into the coast generates environmental pollution. However, a better valorization of these by-products leads to the extraction of sustainable biomolecules. ...

Summary The carp (Cyprinus carpio) has typical elasmoid scales commonly found on teleosts. They provide protection while retaining flexibility and maneuverability of the fish. The exterior surface of the scale consists of an ultrathin discontinuous mineral layer on top of mineralized woven collagen fibrils. The underlying foundation is composed of two collagenous components. The major one consists of a single-twisted “Bouligand” structure with a twisting angle of 36°. A secondary “sheet-like” st...

Maintenance of the epithelium relies on stem cells residing within specialized microenvironments, known as epithelial crypts. Two-photon polymerization (2PP) is a valuable tool for fabricating 3D micro/nanostructures for stem cell niche engineering applications. Herein, biomimetic gelatin methacrylate-based constructs, replicating the precise geometry of the limbal epithelial crypt structures (limbal stem cell "microniches") as an exemplar epithelial niche, are fabricated using 2PP. Human limbal...

Abstract This study was planned to recycle calcium and the phosphorus-rich Nile tilapia fish scale biowaste into nano-hydroxyapatite (FHAP), using ultrasonic-assisted extraction of calcium and phosphorus from fish scales, which was optimized in term of extraction time, acid concentration, extraction temperature, and ultrasonic power. These two elements were determined simultaneously by inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry and the FHAP phase was formed upon addition of the extr...

This study deals with valorization of the protein-rich fish and poultry waste. Since fish scales and chicken feathers are hard-to-degrade by the scavenger microbes, they were hydrolyzed into a source material for construction of rechargeable protein batteries. Both wastes were dissolved in sodium hydroxide (NaOH) solution to form oxidizing and reducing halves of the battery. NaOH not only worked as a hydrolyzing agent but electrolyte for battery as well. Different parameters including NaOH conce...
