Electroconductivity of collagen in vitro and in vivo.


Electrical conductivity was measured on thermally reconstituted collagen fibers in vitro and on isolated rat tail tendon collagen fiber bundles in vivo. The results obtained indicated that collagen per se is not an electroconductor under physiological conditions, but rather a biological insulator.
