Thermal Stability of Collagen II in Cartilage

Abstract

Collagen is the main component of connective tissue. It was shown that collagens fell into several types: collagen I (collagen found in skin, derma, ligaments, and tendons), collagen II (collagen of cartilage tissue), etc. Thermal stability of collagen I was thoroughly studied in [1, 2]. The temperature of denaturation of collagen I in fibrils is 60–70… (More)
