Biological function
The SO1 gene comprises the repetitive part of the naturally occuring MaSpl gene; The 3´-localised non-repetitive sequence of approximately 180 bp was removed from SO1.

The genes MaSpI and MaSpII encode the spider silk proteins in the dragline core fibre of the golden silk orbweaver spider Nephila clavipes.

For more information on MaSpI and MaSpII see BCH records: 48455 and 48456
