Biochemical properties of alligator (Alligator mississippiensis) bone collagen.


Acid-soluble collagen (ASC) and pepsin solubilized collagen (PSC) isolated and purified from alligator (Alligator mississippiensis) bone were studied for molecular size, amino acid profile, secondary structure, and denaturation temperature by SDS-PAGE, HPLC, circular dichroism, and viscometry. Two collagen subunits, alpha1 and alpha2 were identified by SDS… (More)
