Type IX collagen was isolated as a native protein from chicken embryo sternal cartilages and purified to homogeneity. Chondroitin and/or dermatan sulfate were bound covalently to one of the three polypeptide chains present in this protein containing collagenous and noncollagenous domains. Type IX collagen could be metabolically labeled with both radioactive sulfate and glycine. The protein containing either of these labels was sensitive to digestion by bacterial collagenase as well as… CONTINUE READING
