Regulation of procollagen synthesis during the development of chick embryo calvaria. Correlation with procollagen mRNA content.


During the embryonic development of chick calvaria (membranous cranial bones), the relative rate of procollagen synthesis increased from about 12% of total protein synthesis on Day 10 to about 65% on Day 17. This increase is due to a 1.7-fold increase in the absolute rate of procollagen synthesis and a 3-fold decrease in the synthesis of noncollagenous… (More)
