The mechanism of interaction of sodium dodecyl sulfate with elastic fibers.

Abstract

Sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS), an anionic hydrophobic ligand, is known to alter the mechanical properties of elastic fibers. In order to analyze the mechanism of the alteration, two forms of fibrous elastins, "solid" and "powder" elastins, which consisted of fascicular elastic fibers and single or oligomeric elastic fibers, respectively, were prepared from… (More)
