Collagen structure: (a) the collagen structure from the amino acid sequence to fibril. In this panel, the amino acid sequence, the collagen molecule, the packing of collagen molecules, and the structure of a collagen fibril are presented. (b) A collagen fiber D-band periodicity from a collagen thin film imaged using atomic force microscope (CPII Veeco-Bruker Microscope) in the tapping mode (adapted from [90]).
