Collagenase is an important enzyme which plays an important role in degradation of collagen in wound healing, cancer metastasis and even in embryonic development. However, the mechanism of this degradation has not yet been completely understood. In the field of biomedical and protein engineering, the design and development of new peptide based materials is(More)
Native collagen is arranged in bundles of aligned fibrils to withstand in vivo mechanical loads. Reproducing such a process under in vitro conditions has not met with major success. Our approach has been to induce nanolinks, during the self-assembly process, leading to delayed rather than inhibited fibrillogenesis. For this, a designed synthesis of(More)
The interaction of bilirubin with collagen in the significance of jaundice incidence have been previously reported and investigated. The novel peptide sequences containing bilirubin binding domain was identified and located to develop a basis for further studies investigating the interactions of collagen with bilirubin in the present study. In this study an(More)
