What are the 4 types of collagen, their synthesis (s) , location (l), and function (f)?
- Type I - (s) fibroblasts and osteoblasts, (l)bone, tendon, and ligaments, (f) resist tension
- Type II - (s) chondroblasts, (l) cartilage, (f) resist compressive and shear forces at surface
- Type III - (s) fibroblast, (l) pliable tissues ex: blood vessels, uterus, GI tract, skin, muscle, (f) structural maintenance in expandable organs; initial collagen of would repair
- Type IV - (s) fibroblast, (l) basement membrane ex: muscles cells, epithelial cells, adipocytes, (f) support of delicate structures, filtration
