Caption: Collagen fibrils. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of collagen fibrils. The tropocollagen molecules form bands running parallel to the long axis of each fibril. Fibrils form bundles called fibres. Collagen, a type of connective tissue, is the main structural protein in the body. It has high tensile strength, providing structure and elasticity to skin, tendons, ligaments and bones.
