collagenous fiber

col·la·gen fi·ber

, collagenous fiber
an individual fiber that varies in diameter from less than 1 mcm to about 12 mcm and is composed of fibrils; the fibers, which are usually arranged in bundles, undergo some branching and are of indefinite length; chemically the fiber is a glycoprotein, collagen, which yields gelatin upon boiling; it constitutes the principal element of irregular connective tissue, tendons, aponeuroses, and most ligaments, and occurs in the matrix of cartilage, dentin, cementum, and osseous tissue.
Synonym(s): white fiber (2)

collagenous fiber

[kəlaj′ənəs]
any one of the tough, white protein fibers that constitute much of the intercellular substance and the connective tissue of the body. Collagenous fibers contain collagen. They are often arranged in bundles that strengthen the tissues in which they are imbedded.
