A research team at Xi’an Jian Tong University used a salt solution to induce a protein film-dressing self-assembling structure in the epidermis of the mot Astragalus membranaceus and showed that the tissue body has excellent biocompatibility. They also found that the tissue bodies have broad-spectrum antimicrobial properties towards Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, as well as some fungi.¬†Bioinspired materials based on insect proteins could thus be used for wound healing and related biomedical fields.
