Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

The rate of gelation was sufficiently accelerated by the addition of glycerol to the SF aqueous solution.
Chemical & pharmaceutical bulletin  •  1995  |  View Paper
The use of glycerol in combination with silk fibroin in materials processing expands the functional features attainable with this fibrous protein, and in particular, in the formation of more flexible films with potential utility in a range of biomaterial and device applications.

The presence of only 5 wt % Glyc in the film induced a significant conformational change in SF where Silk I* (repeated type II β-turn and no α-helix) newly appeared.

Glc also induced the structural transition of SS from a random coil structure to a β-sheet structure.
The addition of Glc enhanced the elongation property of the SS film when the Glc content was 50-70 wt% of SS.

We propose that glycerol may be simultaneously inducing and interfering with β-sheet formation in silk materials , causing some improper folding that results in less-organized silk II structures even after the glycerol is removed.
