What: "Collagen is the best known structural protein. It is a globular protein with a triple helix configuration. It has lots of hydroxyproline and hydroxylysine residues that stabilize the structure. Procollagen is made within the cell cytoplasm (such as a fibroblast) and secreted to the extracellular compartment where it is cleaved to collagen. Collagen is like rope."
