Complete primary structure of human collagen type XIV (undulin).


A partial cDNA sequence coding for the human extracellular matrix protein undulin has been completed. The completed sequence provides conclusive evidence for the suggested identity of undulin and collagen type XIV. Two differently sized polyproteins of 1780 and 1796 amino acids, with an overall amino acid sequence identity of 75% compared to chicken CXIV, emerge from variant 3' sequence ends encoding the C-terminal non-collagenous (NC) NC1 domain of human collagen type XIV.
