In vertebrate animals, fibrillar collagen accumulates, organizes, and persists in structures which resist mechanical force. This antidissipative behavior is possibly due to a mechanochemical force-switch which converts collagen from enzyme-susceptible to enzyme-resistant. Degradation experiments on native tissue and reconstituted fibrils suggest that(More)
Over the last 30 years, desferrioxamine has been the only iron chelator in clinical use. This chelator is expensive and must be given by injection. A new class of chelators, namely 1-alkyl-2-methyl-3-hydroxypyrid-4-ones, have been shown to be orally effective. Using 1,2 dimethyl-3-hydroxy-pyrid-4-one (DMHP), we have carried out a study to clarify the(More)
