Schmid metaphyseal chondrodysplasia results from mutations within the COOH-terminal globular domain (NC1) of type X collagen, a short chain collagen expressed in the hypertrophic region of the growth plate cartilage. Previous in vitro studies have proposed that mutations prevent the association of the NC1 domain of constituent chains of the trimer based upon a lack of formation of a trimeric structure that is resistant to dissociation with sodium dodecyl sulfate. To examine the effect of… CONTINUE READING
