The main structure of shark type I collagen is similar to that of land mammals, with a partial difference in amino acid sequence and post-translational modification. By static light scattering, the weight-average molecular weight of shark collagen (7.52 x 10(5)) suggests the presence of some aggregated molecules, oligomeric collagen. The self-assembly curve of shark collagen had a shorter lag phase and a longer growth phase than that of pig collagen. The optimum temperature and pH of shark… CONTINUE READING
