Summary Embryologically, the largest mesodermal derivative is connective tissue encompassing blood, cartilage, bone, and connective tissue proper. Collagen is a major component of connective tissue proper and more specifically white fibrous tissue. Fascia, the largest component of white fibrous tissue, contains linear sheets of collagen found in superficial, deep, and subserous layers. Collagen is piezoelectric, functioning as a transducer of mechanical and electrical energy. Electrical…
