reticulin

 [rĕ-tik´u-lin]
a scleroprotein present in the connective fibers of reticular tissue, closely related to collagen in composition.

re·tic·u·lin

(re-tik'yū-lin),
Name given to the chemical substance of reticular fibers, which were formerly thought to be distinct from collagen by reason of their distinctive structure and staining properties but are now regarded as type III collagen (with its associated proteoglygans and structural glycoproteins).
