Vitreous structure. V. The morphology and thermal stability of vitreous collagen fibers and comparison to articular cartilage (type II) collagen.

Abstract

Vitreous samples from bovine, ovine, human, canine, and lapine unfrozen eyes were found to contain fine fibrils which displayed no clearly discernible banding pattern when negatively stained with either phosphotungstic acid (pH 8.9) or silicotungstic acid (pH 7.0). The fibrils from the different species were found to be of similar width (10.5 to 12.5 nm… (More)
