Studies on Optimization of Papain Hydrolysis Conditions for Release of Glycosaminoglycans from the Chicken Keel Cartilage

The goal of this study was to find the best papain hydrolysis conditions for getting glycosaminoglycans from chicken keel cartilages (pH, E/S ratio, incubation temperature, and hydrolysis time). Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) are natural biocompounds found in sharks, pigs, cows, chickens, and other animals that combine to generate cartilage tissuses. They...
