A family of fibrous proteins, collagens are the building blocks of skin, tendon, bone, and other connective tissues.
Made up of proteins and sugars, strands of proteoglycans interweave with collagens and form a mesh-like tissue. This allows cartilage to flex and absorb physical shock.
Found throughout the cartilage, chondrocytes are cells that produce cartilage and help it stay healthy as it grows.
