Abnormal type I collagen metabolism by cultured fibroblasts in lethal perinatal osteogenesis imperfecta.

Abstract

Cultured skin fibroblasts from seven consecutive cases of lethal perinatal osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) expressed defects of type I collagen metabolism. The secretion of [14C]proline-labelled collagen by the OI cells was specifically reduced (51-79% of control), and collagen degradation was increased to twice that of control cells in five cases and… (More)
