The aminopropeptide of type III collagen incorporates [3H]putrescine in the presence of liver transglutaminase, and the change in incorporation with concentration indicates one binding site on each of the Mr = 15,000 subunits of the peptide. At low concentrations the incorporation was comparable to that of dimethyl casein and much greater than actin or… CONTINUE READING
