Control of heterotypic fibril formation by collagen V is determined by chain stoichiometry.


Although the collagen V heterotrimer is known to be involved in the control of fibril assembly, the role of the homotrimer in fibrillar organization has not yet been examined. Here, the production of substantial amounts of recombinant collagen V homotrimer has allowed a detailed study of its role in homotypic and heterotypic fibril formation. After removal… (More)
