Abstract The sensitivity of some of the intermolecular crosslinks in collagen fibrils to a variety of chemical reagents has been demonstrated by changes in the fibre strength. The cleavage of these bonds by acids, alkalis and β-aminothiols has been shown to be completely inhibited by prior reduction. These findings are believed to be consistent with the presence of a Schiff base (>C=N−) as a labile intermolecular crosslink in tendon collagen. It is suggested that the labile crosslink is an… CONTINUE READING
