PMID:  10182119     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Collagen is a protein that is widely distributed in humans and plays an important role in many aspects of tissue performance. This versatility is central to the uses of collagen in biomedical devices. The structure and properties of collagen and the basis for their biomedical uses are described in this article.
