Abstract: 
Specific collagenase from the culture media of various rabbit tissues and cells exists in active and latent forms. Latent collagenase is most effectively activated with 4-aminophenylmercuric acetate, a thiol-blocking reagent, strongly suggesting that latent forms are enzyme-inhibitor complexes. A collagenase inhibitor from bone cultures, which may be closely related to the inhibitor of such latent enzyme complexes, was partially characterized.
