Molecular Weight (kDa):
Collagen is located in the extracellular matrix of connective tissues. It is part of the interacting network of proteoglycans and proteins that provides a structural framework for both soft and calcified connective tissues. Type I collagen (95 kDa) is found in bone, cornea, skin and tendon. Mutations in the encoding gene are associated with osteogenesis imperfecta, Ehlers Danlos syndrome, and idiopathic osteoporosis.
Collagen from washed dissected tissue was dissolved in acetic acid after mild pepsin treatment. Collagen type I was then purified using differential salt precipitation.
