Thermal transition of collagen in ovine connective tissues.


The thermal transition temperature (T(m)) of collagen in a range of muscle and non-muscle connective tissues from lambs, hoggets and mature sheep was measured by differential scanning calorimetry. The muscles selected were: semimembranosus (SM), semitendinosus (ST), biceps femoris (BF), Longissimus dorsi (LD) and psoas major (PM). Although the T(m) of… (More)
