|Title:||Novel plant based formulations for short term preservation of animal skins|
|Abstract:||This study presents monitoring at different temperatures and time of animal hides and skins subjected to bacterial degradation. Rate of collagen and non-collagenous protein degradation and microbial population dynamics were found to vary with temperature and storage period. Microorganisms (proteolytic, collagenolytic and keratinolytic) were found responsiblefor skin deterioration. <i>Acalypha indica</i> based formulation for curing animal skins was found viable, cost-effective and ecofriendly,reducing total dissolved solids (TDS) level to a considerable extent as compared to salt curing methods.|
