  • This paper reviews the structure (from molecular to macroscopic level) of collagen, elastin and glycosaminoglycans, with special reference to their functional properties and to how their behavior can be elucidated from in vitro manipulations of the tissues by biochemical means. Modes to analyse the mechanical behavior are briefly discussed and exemplified by data from reconstituted collagenous "tissue". It is concluded that the basic equation for the "non-linear elasticity" component in Fung's… CONTINUE READING
