Periarticular Ligamentous Tissue: A Biochemical and Physiologic Assessment-Collagen in Tendons and Ligaments

Collagen is the major protein in ligaments and tendons, and it is not a single entity. It is the single most abundant animal protein in mammals, accounting for up to 30% of all proteins. The collagen molecules, after being secreted by the cells, assemble into characteristic fibers responsible for the functional integrity of tissues such […]
