Gene Information

General description

Collagen is classified into a number of structurally and genetically distinct types. We use the nomenclature proposed by Bornstein and Traub. Do not confuse Sigma type designations with recognized collagen classification types.

Application

Collagen-type 1 may be used in research of Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). Robust expression of collagen-type 1 is one distinctive feature of IPF. Additionally, collagen-type 1 has been used in studies on the effect of endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress from IPF on myofibroblastic differentiation of lung fibroblasts. Collage-type 1 soluble in acidic solution produces three dimensional scaffolding useful in bioengineering and cell culture applications where biomaterials are needed to replace native collagen extracellular matrices.

Collagen Type I has been used as a scaffold for the growth in vitro of stem cells in a wide variety of biomaterial engineering studies.

Topography-guided laser refractive surgery regularizes the front corneal surface irregularities to achieve the desired refractive outcome. This is particularly applicable in highly aberrated corneas, where wavefront aberrometry is often not possible. This article aims to review the recently published results

Cell migration through 3D tissue depends on a physicochemical balance between cell deformability and physical tissue constraints. Migration rates are further governed by the capacity to degrade ECM by proteolytic enzymes, particularly matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs), and integrin- and actomyosin-mediated mechanocoupling.
