The consequences of improper regulation of collagen turnover include diseases such as tumor cell metastasis and arthritis. Several fluorogenic triple-helical peptide (fTHP) substrates have been constructed presently to examine collagenolytic behavior. These substrates incorporate L- or D-2-amino-3-(7-methoxy-4-coumaryl)propionic acid (Amp) or L- or D-2-amino-3-(6,7-dimethoxy-4-coumaryl)propionic acid (Adp) as the fluorophore and N-2,4-dinitrophenyl (Dnp) as the quencher. The desired sequences...Expand abstract
