General description

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.

Collagen terminology using the Bornstein and Traub designation originates from the reference; Bornstein, P. and Traub, W. The Proteins, (1979) 4, 411-605


Bovine achilles tendon collagen was used in a study of plant extracts as inhibitors of MMP-collagenases, the putative active agents in the breakdown of cartilage in osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
