Biochemical and Electronmicroscopic Investigations on Helix pomatia Collagen

O. Schmut, P. Roll, M. E. Reich and W. Palm


The skin of Helix pomatia was investigated by biochemical methods and electronmicroscope. Biochemical investigations showed that Helix pomatia collagen represents a methionine-lacking collagen resistant to CNBr-cleavage. Electron microscopic studies showed a cross striation pattern of 5 3 -5 7 nm.
