Thermal Denaturation of Collagen in the Dispersed and Solid State.

Abstract

Thermal denaturation temperature of newly reconstituted collagen fibrils from rat tail tendons is 52 degrees C compared with 42 degrees C for neutral solutions. This suggests that the increase in concentration of collagen within the fibril increases the stability of the individual molecules. The absence of firm intermolecular bonds in these fibrils rules… (More)
