Levels of type VI collagen mRNAs were determined in cultured skin fibroblasts derived from the upper, middle, and lower layers. The level of alpha 1 (VI) collagen mRNA was the highest in the fibroblasts from the upper layer. In contrast, alpha 2 (VI) collagen mRNA level in the fibroblasts from the lower layer predominated over those in the upper and middle… CONTINUE READING
