Collagen is the main structural protein in the extracellular space in the various connective tissues in animal bodies. As the main component of connective tissue, it is the most abundant protein in mammals, making up from 25% to 35% of the whole-body protein content. Depending upon the degree of mineralization, collagen tissues may be rigid (bone), compliant (tendon), or have a gradient from rigid to compliant (cartilage). Collagen in the form of elongated fibrils, is mostly found in fibrous tissues such as tendons, ligaments and skin. It is also abundant in corneas, cartilage, bones, blood vessels, the gut, intervertebral discs and the dentin in teeth. In muscle tissue, it serves as a major component of the endomysium. Collagen constitutes one to two percent of muscle tissue, and accounts for 6% of the weight of strong, tendinous muscles. The fibroblast is the most common cell that creates collagen.
Collagen occurs in many places throughout the body. Over 90% of the collagen in the human body, however, is type I.
Reconstructive surgical uses
Throughout the 4 phases of wound healing, collagen performs the following functions in wound healing:
Guiding function: Collagen fibers serve to guide fibroblasts. Fibroblasts migrate along a connective tissue matrix.
Chemotactic properties: The large surface area available on collagen fibers can attract fibrogenic cells, which help in healing.
Nucleation: Collagen, in the presence of certain neutral salt molecules can acts as a nucleating agent causing formation of fibrillar structures. A collagen wound dressing might serve as a guide for orienting new collagen deposition and capillary growth.
Hemostatic properties: Blood platelets interact with the collagen to make a hemostatic plug.
Collagen has an unusual amino acid composition and sequence:
o Glycine is found at almost every third residue.
o Proline makes up about 17% of collagen.
o Collagen contains two uncommon derivative amino acids not directly inserted during translation. These amino acids are found at specific locations relative to glycine and are modified post-translationally by different enzymes, both of which require vitamin C as a cofactor.
o Hydroxyproline derived from proline
o Hydroxylysine derived from lysine – depending on the type of collagen , varying numbers of hydroxylysines are glycosylated (mostly having disaccharides attached).
Collagen has a wide variety of applications, from food to medical. For instance, it is used in cosmetic surgery and burn surgery. It is widely used in the form of collagen causing for sausages, which are also used in the manufacture of musical strings.
If collagen is subject to sufficient denaturation, e.g. by heating, the three tropocollagen strands separate partially or completely into globular domains, containing a different secondary structure to the normal collagen polyproline II (PPII), e.g. random coils. This process describes the formulation of gelatin, which is used in many foods, including flavored gelatin desserts. Besides food, gelatin has been used in pharmaceutical, cosmetic, and photography industries.
