A direct role of collagen glycation in bone fracture
Non-enzymatic glycation (NEG) is an age-related process accelerated by diseases like diabetes, and causes the accumulation of advanced glycation end-products (AGEs). NEG-mediated modification of bone's organic matrix, principally collagen type-I, has been implicated in impairing skeletal physiology...
