General description

Collagen is made of three polypeptide chains. Type 2 collagen is ubiquitously present in the hyaline cartilage. It is a homotrimer made of three α1 chains. Type 2 collagen is also predominant in nucleus pulposus of the vertebral disc and vitreous body of the eye. The proteoglycan obtained from the chicken sternal cartilage is similar to type nine collagen structure.
Collagen is classified into a number of structurally and genetically distinct types. We use the nomenclature proposed by Bornstein and Traub. Do not confuse Sigma type designations with recognized collagen classification types.

Application

Collagen from chicken sternal cartilage has been used in enzyme–linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) , chondrocyte-mediated tissue production in vitro, induction, treatment and assessment of collagenα induced arthritis (CIA) and cell proliferation assay.
