Tendons consist of collagen (mostly type I collagen) and elastin embedded in a proteoglycan‐water matrix with collagen accounting for 65–80% and elastin approximately 1–2% of the dry mass of the tendon. These elements are produced by tenoblasts and tenocytes, which are the elongated fibroblasts and fibrocytes that lie between the collagen fibers, and are organized in a complex hierarchical scheme to form the tendon proper. Soluble tropocollagen molecules form cross‐links to create insoluble… Expand
