The major tensile strength of the amniotic membrane is provided by the collagens of the compact layer beneath the amniotic epithelium. However, this arrangement of interstitial collagens beneath and connected to the collagens of the amniotic basement membrane provides extra strength in tissue exposed to mechanical forces [33]. ECM materials form the structural components of the architecture of the amniotic membrane and contain a variety of specialized proteins [36]. Collagen and proteoglycan molecules are, along with elastin, fibronectin and laminin, the major components of the amniotic membrane ECM, accounting for the tissue integrity and mechanical properties [33].
