Improved Collagen Extraction by Modified Longin Method

  • T A Brown (a1), D E Nelson (a1), J S Vogel (a1) and J R Southon (a1)
Abstract

A re-evaluation of the Longin collagen-extraction method shows that a lower reflux temperature reduces degradation of protein (“collagen”) remnants. This allows additional purification through ultrafiltration to isolate the >30kDalton fraction of the reflux product.
