Type I collagen is the most abundant collagen of the human body. Type I collagen_sentence_0

It forms large, eosinophilic fibers known as collagen fibers. Type I collagen_sentence_1

It is present in scar tissue, the end product when tissue heals by repair, as well as tendons, ligaments, the endomysium of myofibrils, the organic part of bone, the dermis, the dentin, and organ capsules. Type I collagen_sentence_2

Formation Type I collagen_section_0

The COL1A1 gene produces the pro-alpha1(I) chain. Type I collagen_sentence_3

This chain combines with another pro-alpha1(I) chain and also with a pro-alpha2(I) chain (produced by the COL1A2 gene) to make a molecule of type I procollagen. Type I collagen_sentence_4

These triple-stranded, rope-like procollagen molecules must be processed by enzymes outside the cell. Type I collagen_sentence_5

Once these molecules are processed, they arrange themselves into long, thin fibrils that cross-link to one another in the spaces around cells. Type I collagen_sentence_6

The cross-links result in the formation of very strong mature type I collagen fibers. Type I collagen_sentence_7
