Different Types of Proteins: Structural Protein

Structural Proteins are considered the most abundant and very fibrous proteins. Many are used as attachments such as collagen. In providing attachments, structural proteins give the cell support and maintain its shape.  Other examples include elastin, laminin, and keratin. Keratin, as shown in the picture, is found in many things like hair and fingernails.
