 (kŏl′ə-jən)
n.
1. Any of a class of extracellular proteins that are composed of three coiled polypeptide chains, form strong fibers, and are the main constituents of cartilage, bone, and other connective tissues in animals.
2. Material composed principally of collagen proteins. Collagen is converted into gelatin when boiled in water.

(kŏl′ə-jən)
The tough, fibrous protein found in bone, cartilage, skin, and other connective tissue. Collagen provides these body structures with the ability to withstand forces that stretch or lengthen them.

[USPRwire, Mon Mar 11 2019] The growing inclination of consumer towards high protein consumption and healthy lifestyle is driving the demand in the marine collagens market.
Summary: Fact.MR has announced the addition of the " Marine Collagens Market Forecast, Trend Analysis & Competition Tracking - Global Market insights 2018 to 2028"report to their offering.
"It is where all collagens up the tree of life have been derived, particularly mammalian sources.
The solubilized collagen is one of the higher collagen concentration collagens on the market at up to 35 mg/ml.
There are different types of collagens. Some are derived from animal bones or skin, and others from animal cartilage.
Organic acids are capable of solubilizing non-cross-linked collagens and also of breaking some of the inter-strand cross-links in collagen, which leads to a higher solubility of collagen during the extraction process (Liu et al., 2015).
The uterine myometrium consists mostly of smooth muscle cells that stain positive for [alpha]-smooth muscle actin and desmin and are interspersed with interstitial collagens. The majority of collagens in the interstitial areas of the myometrium are Type I, Type III, and Type V, though types IV and VI are present in the uterus as well [4].
Collagens comprise almost 30% of total cell protein in mammalian cells and they have been identified among the most promising biomaterials for the formation of novel bioengineering interventions [1-3].
