Collagen helix protein structure, Biology

Collagen Helix

  1. Collagen has a large amount of glycine (25%) and proline (and hydroxyproline, 25%).
  2. They run parallel, form a right handed super-helix that is stabilized by hydrogen bonds amongst the three. The triple helix of collagen is often called tropo-collagen.
  3. Collagen occurs in those tissues where extensibility is limited e.g., connective tissue, tendons, bones.
