Adhesive strength and curing rate of marine mussel protein extracts on porcine small intestinal submucosa

Abstract: An adhesive protein extracted from marine mussel (Mytilus edulis) was used to bond strips of connective tissue for the purpose of evaluating the use of curing agents to improve adhesive curing. Specifically, mussel adhesive protein solution (MAPS, 0.5 mM dihydroxyphenylalanine) was applied, with or without the curing agents, to the ends of two overlapping strips of porcine small intestinal submucosa. The bond strength of this lap joint was determined after curing for 1 h at room temperature (25°C). The strengt… Show more

“…Biological glues based on an adhesive protein extracted from the marine mussel Mytilus edulis [100] and a protein-based adhesive elastomer secreted by the Australian frog Notaden bennetti [34] have been used to glue porcine small intestinal submucosa [100] and may also be useful in annular repair strategies. ''Frog-glue'' offers a stronger alternative to fibrin glue, has been used for the reattachment of bucket handle tears in knee joint menisci and offers potential in the non-surgical sealing of annular defects as an integral part of a repair strategy [35].…”

“…All three samples showed a peak at 1653 cm 21 When compared with the BSA spectrum, the ivy nanoparticles also shared a peak around 1518 cm 21 for BSA and 1539 cm 21 for ivy. This peak represents the amide II band and is a standard protein peak, indicating the presence of in-plane N-H bending, and the stretching vibrations of C -N and C-C [25].…”

“…However, nanoparticles were not observed in either of these studies, potentially because of the techniques used at the time of these studies. In other biological systems, such as the marine mussel (Mytilus edulis) and polychaete (Phragmatopoma californica), proteins are considered as the main building blocks that lead to the generation of strong adhesive forces [20][21][22]. In these two systems, unlike Parthenocissus sp., the adhesives secreted from these organisms have shown the presence of nanoparticles, mainly thought to form from the interactions of negatively charged proteins with divalent cations, forming three-dimensional nanoparticles [22].…”
