Neutral-salt soluble collagen was relatively abundant in young post-burn hypertrophic scars. The content of insoluble collagen was fairly low in granulation tissues, whereas it gradually increased over 2 years and reached a significantly higher value than that in normal skins. Interrupted gel electrophoresis was carried out to estimate the relative(More)
Pepsin digests of human post-burn wound tissues grafted with autologous fresh skin showed a significantly lower ratio, 0.37 +/- 0.04 (mean +/- S.D.), of type III to type I collagen determined by interrupted gel electrophoresis than the ratio, 0.55 +/- 0.13, measured in ungrafted wound tissues (p less than 0.001). In wounds grafted with frozen skin there was(More)
Collagen concentration was fairly low in young bovine 3rd premolar pulps, about 9 per cent by dry weight of pulp in stage I, but it increased consistently up to more than 25 per cent at stage V as the pulp matured. The ratio of type III to type I collagen similarly increased from 13 per cent at stage I to 32 per cent at stage V. Both collagenase and(More)
Glutathione-S-epoxide transferase has been purified from guinea pig liver in a homogeneous form having a sedimentation coefficient, s20,w of 3.8S, and a molecular weight of 46,000, and dissociable into subunits with a molecular weight of 25,000. The activities with four substrates, styrene oxide, naphthalene oxide, iodomethane, and p-nitrobenzyl chloride,(More)
