A film of the present invention contains a polypeptide derived from spider silk proteins. The decomposition temperature of the film is 240 to 260C. The film absorbs ultraviolet light having a wavelength of 200 to 300 nm and has a light transmittance of 85% or more at a wavelength of 400 to 780 nm. The film is transparent and colorless in a visible light region. A method for producing a film of the present invention includes: dissolving a polypeptide derived from spider silk proteins in a dimethyl sulfoxide solvent to prepare a dope; and cast-molding the dope on a surface of a base. Thus, the present invention provides a spider silk protein film that can be formed easily and has favorable stretchability, and a method for producing the same.

Polypeptide particles of the present invention are particles of a polypeptide derived from spider silk proteins, and have an average particle size of 1000 nm or less. A method for producing polypeptide particles of the present invention includes: a solution production step in which the polypeptide is dissolved in at least one solvent selected from the group consisting of DMSO, DMF, and these with an inorganic salt, so as to obtain a solution of the polypeptide; a step in which the solution produced in the solution production step is substituted with a water-soluble solvent so as to obtain an aqueous solution of the polypeptide; and a step in which the aqueous solution of the polypeptide is dried. Thereby, the present invention provides polypeptide particles suitable for application to a living body and capable of being applied to cosmetics, etc., while identifying the properties of the polypeptide particles, and a method for producing the same.


The present invention relates to a method for partially purifying a hydrophilic recombinant protein from a host expressing a hydrophilic recombinant protein. The method includes: a solution acquisition step in which a dissolving solvent is added to the host expressing a hydrophilic recombinant protein so as to dissolve the host cell and an insoluble substance is separated therefrom so as to obtain a solution. The hydrophilic recombinant protein has a hydropathy index of 0 or less, and the dissolving solvent is an aprotic polar solvent. Preferably, the solution is subjected to solvent substitution using an aqueous solvent.
