Assessing collagen fibrils molecular damage after a single stretch–release cycle
Exciting work published in Soft Matter utilized F-CHPs to analyze molecular damage to collagen fibrils after a single asymmetrical stretch-release experiment. Researchers saw that the supramolecular fibril structure was unaffected by these experiments and that a fibril rupture is not a pre-requisite for molecular denaturation of the collagen fibril. The figure below shows how the asymmetrical stretch-release experiment was performed. The dotted line re...
