Oxygen permeability of silk fibroin membranes: A critical review and personal perspective

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Membranes made of Bombyx mori silk fibroin are currently used as substrata for growing cells with an aim to generate biomaterial-cells constructs for tissue engineering applications. Although the oxygen transport characteristics of the membranes are important in these applications, there is limited work reported on the oxygen permeability of silk fibroin. This review discusses critically the existing literature and attempts to explain the scarcity of data on this topic.
