  • Their contribution helped to elucidate the three-chain structure of the collagen molecule.
  • This clipping step is necessary for collagen molecules to function normally and assemble into fibrils outside cells.
  • All collagen molecules are made of three protein strands (called alpha chains).
  • As was mentioned before, the first generation of MMP inhibitors were based on the structure of the collagen molecule.
  • The first generation of MMP inhibitors were based on the structure of the collagen molecule.
  • The tenocytes produce the collagen molecules, which aggregate end-to-end and side-to-side to produce collagen fibrils.
  • As a graduate student, he and Ramachandran worked on the triple helix structure of the collagen molecule.
  • Mutations in the COL2A1 gene interfere with the assembly of type II collagen molecules.
  • Single molecule computational studies of type IV collagen molecules have shown changes in the structure and nanomechanical behavior of mutated molecules.
  • The protein determined by the COL3A1 gene is used to assemble larger type III collagen molecules, found mostly in skin, blood vessels, and internal organs.
  • Potentials are thought to occur when a number of collagen molecules are stressed in the same way displacing significant numbers of the charge carriers from the inside to the surface of the specimen.
  • Instead of forming collagen molecules, the abnormal protein builds up in cartilage cells (chondrocytes).
  • While scientists originally suspected that the problem lay in the production of the type I collagen molecule, it is now known that type V collagen is the molecule which is incorrectly produced.
  • As with its monomeric structure, several conflicting models alleged that either the packing arrangement of collagen molecules is 'sheet-like' or microfibrillar.
  • This mutation prevents collagen molecules from being assembled properly, which disrupts the structure of type XI collagen.
  • Mutations in the COL2A1 gene interfere with the assembly of type II collagen molecules, resulting in a reduced amount of this type of collagen in the body.
  • Mutations in the COL2A1 gene interfere with the assembly of type II collagen molecules, which prevents bones from developing properly.
  • The two collagenases act synergistically by cleaving tropocollagen (the 'collagen molecule') at different points.
  • Instead of forming collagen molecules, the abnormal COL2A1 protein builds up in cartilage cells (chondrocytes).
  • Defective collagen molecules or reduced amounts of collagen affect the development of bones and other connective tissues, leading to the characteristic features of Stickler syndrome.
