Description Col1a1 (Collagen, type I, α1) or Collagen is a major structural human protein, which assembles in the form of fibrils. It is a very long, thin and the most abundant protein found in the human body. It is a supercoiled right-helix of three left-handed polypeptide chains. These chains are composed of ~1040 amino acids, which are essentially repeats of three amino acids -(Gly-X-Y)n. Gly is glycine and X and Y can be any amino acids, but in humans are usually proline and hydroxyproline, respectively. Collagen is an essential ingredient of connective tissue. Studies in a Chinese family show that mutation in COL1A1 (Collagenase type I) is linked with type I osteogenesis imperfecta. Collagen is linked with subchondral turnover of bone, and might have potential as marker to determine the state of joint space narrowing and osteophytes in osteoarthritis.
