The processing of [3H]proline-labeled procollagen III in excised chick embryo blood vessels was found to differ significantly from that of procollagen I in the same tissue. While first the amino propeptides and then the carboxyl propeptides were fairly rapidly cleaved from procollagen I, only the carboxyl propeptides were split off procollagen III, leaving… CONTINUE READING
