It was found that higher cooling rate resulted in a slightly lower T d than lower cooling rate. Different ice formation kinetics were obtained with a procedure similar to above.

Net integral enthalpy and entropy: In all cases the Ref. According to Al-Muhtaseb et al.

Thermal Destabilization of Collagen Matrix Hierarchical Structure by Freeze/Thaw

The effect of cryopreservation or heating on the mechanical properties and histomorphology of rat bone-patellar tendon-bone. Experimental data of equilibrium water content and their corresponding water activity at each temperature were fitted to four isotherm models Chung-Pfrost, Oswin, Dent and Lewicki models.

Tolaba et al. Critical Reviews in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. In this study, we focused on the fibril expansion hypothesis based on our observations of collagen hydrogels with DSC.

The destabilization is predominantly due to ice formation. The Entropic Cost of Polymer Confinement.

You have access to this article. To explore the relative effects of freezing-induced mechanical expansion and freeze-concentration of solutes, collagen hydrogels were treated with a hypertonic solution 10X concentrated saline for 20 min followed by repeated washing in isotonic saline for 30 min.

Issue 22, Denaturation temperature of collagen in B molecular solution and C hydrogel. In fact, tangyuan can be treated as a multi-domain food made up of core material with higher water content and shell material GRF with relatively lower water content. Nevertheless, the differential entropy does not mean order or disorder of the total system.

The problem is the mathematical part to describe this decrease In the process, most substances take up less space when frozen than when liquid. Meanwhile, I can make a guess. Exposure to low temperatures in the absence of ice has only minimal effect. Current Journals. They'll start to freeze at one temperature, then more will freeze as the temperature is lowered further.

It can be seen that the equilibrium moisture content s increased with decreasing temperature at constant water activity. Advances in Protein Chemistry, Vol Similar effects of moisture content on differential enthalpy of sorption were reported by Al-Muhtaseb et al. It is important to note that the model simulations presented here represent average effects since they do not take into account the variations in molecular packing due to inherent heterogeneities in collagen fibril at gap region and fibril core [ 58 — 60 ].

Denaturation temperature, T d , was determined as the temperature attained at peak maximum. S 84 [pii] pmid: Therefore, our intention of this study is to explore the mechanisms of freezing damage sustained by collagen at fibril and molecular levels.

Experiments performed during both cooling and heating and with samples of different thermal histories show a broad endothermic feature beginning at ca. Differential entropy of desorption of glutinous rice flour as a function of equilibrium water content. December 21, ; Published: Thys, R. Lipid and protein changes due to freezing in dunning AT-1 cells.

Mathematical description of experimental data. Water, of course, freezes at 0 degrees Celsius.
