Gene: Col6a3 (collagen, type VI, alpha 3) Mus musculus
Symbol: Col6a3
Name: collagen, type VI, alpha 3
Description: Predicted to have extracellular matrix structural constituent conferring tensile strength. Predicted to be involved in growth plate cartilage chondrocyte morphogenesis. Localizes to several cellular components, including the collagen trimer; extracellular space; and sarcolemma. Used to study Ullrich congenital muscular dystrophy and congenital muscular dystrophy. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Ullrich congenital muscular dystrophy; dystonia 27; and muscular dystrophy. Is expressed in several structures, including cornea; dermis; genitourinary system; musculoskeletal system; and small intestine. Orthologous to human COL6A3 (collagen type VI alpha 3 chain); PARTICIPATES IN syndecan signaling pathway; cell-extracellular matrix signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,2-dichloroethane; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 17beta-estradiol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: AI507288; Col6a-3; collagen alpha 3 chain type VI; collagen alpha-3(VI) chain; collagen alpha3(VI); procollagen, type VI, alpha 3; type VI collagen alpha 3 subunit
