Collagens and proteins with collagen-like domains form large superfamilies in various species, and the numbers of known family members are increasing constantly. Vertebrates have at least 27 collagen types with 42 distinct polypeptide chains, >20 additional proteins with collagen-like domains and approximately 20 isoenzymes of various collagen-modifying enzymes. Caenorhabditis elegans has approximately 175 cuticle collagen polypeptides and two basement membrane collagens. Drosophila… CONTINUE READING
