collagen fiber

(redirected from collagen fibre)

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)
