More Information
Description Collagen is the main structural protein in the extracellular space and is the most abundant protein in the ECM. Collagens are divided into two classes - fibril (types I, II, III, V) and non-fibril (types IV, VI). Type II collagen is the main component of cartilage and mutations are associated several types of chondrodysplasia. Type II collagen is formed by homotrimers of α1(II) chains.
