The EDC and BDDGE treated tissues produced a characteristic cross-linking of the proteins which was observed in all crosslinked samples, suggesting that the chemical treatment had effectively cross-linked the different chains of collagen proteins resulting into formation of high mass which did not find entry even in the stacking gel (Fig.

To quantitatively indicate the effect of crosslinks on [DELTA]SASA upon unfolding a new term called Crosslinking Factor (CLF) was introduced (CLF was described in Materials and Methods section.) Effectively, CLF is a measure of reduction in the SASA of unfolded protein as a consequence of presence of a single crosslink, such as disulfide bond, and calculated to be equal to 918.5 [A.sup.2].
