Pharmacological and physicochemical properties of collagen breakdown-products.


It has been found that the pharmacologically active, low molecular products obtained by digestion of telopeptides-deprived type I collagen with bacterial collagenase is a heterogenous mixture of at least 21 peptides of different molecular weight. They contain 3 to 15 amino acid residues. About 80% of them are tripeptides of the sequence Gly-Pro-X. The most… (More)
