Measurement of aminoterminal propeptide of type I procollagen (PINP) in serum.

Abstract

The aminoterminal propeptide of type I procollagen (PINP) in serum is a sensitive indicator of the synthesis of type I collagen. Four assays are available for PINP, two of them (intact PINP assays) measure the intact propeptide and the other two (total PINP assays) also detect a smaller antigen in serum. In many clinical situations, these assays give… (More)
