  • FunctionType X collagen is a product of hyperthrophic chondrotocytes and has been localized to presumptive mineralization zones of hyaline cartilage.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in COL10A1 are the cause of Schmid type metaphyseal chondrodysplasia (SMCD) [MIM:156500]. SMCD is a dominantly inherited disorder of the osseous skeleton. The cardinal features of the phenotype are mild short stature, coxa vara and a waddling gait. Radiography usually shows sclerosis of the ribs, flaring of the metaphyses, and a wide irregular growth plate, especially of the knees. A variant form of SMCD is spondylometaphyseal dysplasia Japanese type. It is characterized by spinal involvement comprising mild platyspondyly, vertebral body abnormalities, and end-plate irregularity.
  • Sequence similaritiesContains 1 C1q domain.
  • Post-translational
    Prolines at the third position of the tripeptide repeating unit (G-X-Y) are hydroxylated in some or all of the chains.

Anti-Collagen X antibody images

  • Immunofluorescence analysis of mouse bone marrow stromal cells, staining Collagen X with ab58632.

    Cells were fixed with formaldehyde, permeabilized with 0.2% Triton X-100 before incubating with primary antibody (1/50) overnight. An AlexaFluor®488-conjugated anti-rabbit IgG (1/500) was used as the secondary antibody.
  • Anti-Collagen X antibody (ab58632) at 1/500 dilution + HT 1080 (Human fibrosarcoma) Whole Cell Lysate at 10 µg

    Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (HRP) preadsorbed (ab97080) at 1/5000 dilution
    developed using the ECL technique

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Observed band size : 66 + 64 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    Additional bands at : 37 kDa,50 kDa,98 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

    Exposure time : 150 seconds
    The band observed at 64 kDa could potentially be a cleaved form of Collagen X due to the presence of a 18 amino acid signal peptide.
