    yea why so much about collagen? all we need to know is that its basically a triple helix fibrous protein...in epithelial and connective tissue??? is that right

    osterblasts secretes collagen which build bones, and also collagen has

    glycine ( amino acid that has H as a r group) every third position.

    high concentration of glycine will probably give more compact bone structure within limited volume, and somehow build better

    bone as secondary structure of protein.

    please correct me if i am wrong, these stuffs are what i learned from biochemistry class like an year ago

    hope this helps

    Correct man. The triple helix fact is a good one to know. It makes collagen unique. And the glycine every third position fact.

    Might want to add some stuff on genetics or heredity in there (eg: a colorblind dad and carrier mom having a child etc)

    Also stuff on the five kingdoms perhaps? (Annelids, Platyhelminthes etc)

    Just my thoughts!
