I'm 13 and writing a report on spiders. How do they use the silk protein gel from the spinnerets? How does it get from the spinnerets to the web? P.S. I know how silk is created, all the way up until the tapering duct
As I currently understand it, the silk proteins are created, then dissolved into a liquid/gel, and stored. Then it is put through a funnel into the tapering duct, liquid is removed. I'm missing an understanding between the removal of the liquid and formation of the silk. Could someone fill in the gap?
