The effect of bovine tendon glycoprotein on the formation of fibrils from collagen solutions.

Abstract

The formation of collagen fibrils under physiological conditions of ionic strength, pH and temperature was markedly affected by the presence of small amounts of bovine tendon glycoprotein. The absorbance of the gels at 400 nm was decreased, and they took longer to form. Over the range of concentration tested, the negative specific absorbance, -delta Asp… (More)
