Abstract

The explosion of information concerning collagen biosynthesis, structure, and function has been amply documented by many recent review articles which have become increasingly specialized in their scope (Gallop et al., 1972; Grant and Prockop, 1972; Traub and Piez, 1971; Davison, 1973). The rapid developments in this field can be attributed both to the generous support to science in the past 20 years, primarily by the United States government, and to the establishment of many active laboratories by young investigators who were trained during the era of rapid expansion of the health sciences. This amplification of collagen research is now yielding a number of important insights into the biology of the protein, and the phenomenon of cross-linking constitutes one of the areas in which substantial progress has been made.
