Product Background

Gene summary
COL12A1 (Collagen Type XII Alpha 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with COL12A1 include bethlem myopathy 2 and ullrich congenital muscular dystrophy 2. Among its related pathways are Degradation of the extracellular matrix and ERK Signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include extracellular matrix structural constituent conferring tensile strength. An important paralog of this gene is MATN1. This gene encodes the alpha chain of type XII collagen, a member of the FACIT (fibril-associated collagens with interrupted triple helices) collagen family. Type XII collagen is a homotrimer found in association with type I collagen, an association that is thought to modify the interactions between collagen I fibrils and the surrounding matrix. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been identified.
Antigen Description
Type XII collagen interacts with type I collagen-containing fibrils, the COL1 domain could be associated with the surface of the fibrils, and the COL2 and NC3 domains may be localized in the perifibrillar matrix. Bethlem myopathy 2 (BTHLM2) [MIM:616471]: A form of Bethlem myopathy, a benign proximal myopathy characterized by early childhood onset and joint contractures most frequently affecting the elbows and ankles. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry. Ullrich congenital muscular dystrophy 2 (UCMD2) [MIM:616470]: A form of Ullrich muscular dystrophy, a congenital myopathy characterized by muscle weakness and multiple joint contractures, generally noted at birth or early infancy. The clinical course is more severe than in Bethlem myopathy. Collagen alpha-1(XII) chain is a protein that in humans is encoded by the COL12A1 gene. 0The function about COL12A1 antigen include extracellular matrix structural constituent conferring tensile strength.
