|Abstract(s):||© 2016 by John Wiley & Sons, Inc. All rights reserved. This chapter presents a comprehensive description of the different methods used for collagen extraction from different by-products, originated by fish processing plans, and from different marine resources. It focuses on the diverse possible applications of marine origin collagen in the biomedical field, particularly for tissue engineering and Regenerative Medicine. From mammals to marine resources and by-products, there are diverse sources from where it is possible to extract collagen. Collagens perform the role of structural and mechanical functions in our body, especially in connective tissues, that makes it unique. There are several techniques that are being used to best characterize and know the composition of the extracted collagen. Fourier Transform Infra Red spectroscopy, differential scanning calorimetry, circular dichroism, sodium dodecyl sulfate- polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE), and amino acid analysis are some of the techniques that can be employed to characterize collagen.|
