Probing Potential Mechanisms of Collagen Crimp Formation During Embryonic Tendon Development.

Tochka, Zachary.


  • Abstract: Tendons are dense connective tissues that are responsible for transmitting muscle mechanical forces to bone. The primary component of the tendon ECM is collagen type I, which gives the tendon its strength and elasticity. The collagen is made up of fibers that run parallel to the long axis of the tendon and exhibit a crimped (wavy) morphology. This crimped morphology is responsible ... read more
