Investigation into the cyto-protective and wound healing properties of cryptic peptides from bovine Achilles tendon collagen.


Many proteins have concealed regions in their amino acid sequences that when liberated or exposed by conformational changes can exhibit bioactivity. Two such cryptic bioactive peptides, C2 (with cell adhesive properties) and E1 (with cell adhesive and antioxidant properties) have been isolated from bovine tendon collagen. This investigation deals with the… (More)
