Articular cartilage is a remarkable tissue with mechanical performance that surpasses engineering standards. Collagen, the most abundant protein in cartilage, plays an important role in this performance. Building on observations of collagen structural changes at the earliest stages of osteoarthritis, we here explore the role of collagen in the disease process.
