Collagen of types I, III and V has been identified and localised in adult human aorta, coronary arteries and atherosclerotic plaques using an indirect immunofluorescent method with specific antibodies to human collagen antigens. The distribution of the three types of collagen was distinct. Type I collagen was found around smooth muscle cells in the aortic media and in large amounts in the atherosclerotic plaque. Type III collagen was found in dense deposits alongside the elastic laminae in the… CONTINUE READING
