Collagens play important roles in development and homeostasis in most higher organisms. In order to function, collagens require the specific chaperone HSP47 for proper folding and secretion. HSP47 is known to bind to the collagen triple-helix but the exact positions and numbers of binding sites are not clear. Here, we employed a collagen II peptide...

Heat shock protein 47 (HSP47), encoded by the SERPINH1 gene, is a molecular chaperone essential for correct folding of collagens. We report a homozygous p.(R222S) substitution in HSP47 in a child with severe osteogenesis imperfecta leading to early demise. p.R222 is a highly conserved residue located within the collagen interacting surface of HSP47...
Chapter
The extracellular matrix (ECM) is the architect of multicellular organisms. The use of various model organisms has helped decipher the mechanisms by which the ECM provides both chemical and mechanical cues that regulate fundamental cellular processes conserved during evolution such as cell migration, invasion, and differentiation. High-throughput,...
Article
Although collagens are the most abundant proteins implicated in various disease pathways, essential mechanisms required for their proper folding and assembly are poorly understood. Heat-shock protein 47 (HSP47), an ER-resident chaperone, was mainly reported to fulfill key functions in folding and secretion of fibrillar collagens by stabilizing pro-...

Collagen VI is a ubiquitous heterotrimeric protein of the extracellular matrix (ECM) that plays an essential role in the proper maintenance of skeletal muscle. Mutations in collagen VI lead to a spectrum of congenital myopathies, from the mild Bethlem Myopathy to the severe Ullrich Congenital Muscular Dystrophy. Collagen VI contains only a short tr...

Type VII collagen is an extracellular matrix protein which is important for skin stability; however, detailed information at the molecular level is scarce. The second vWFA (von‐Willebrand‐factor type A) domain of type VII collagen mediates important interactions, and immunization of mice induces skin blistering in certain strains. To understand vWF...

Proteins are the building blocks of life. While proteins and their localization within cells and sub-cellular compartments are well defined, the proteins predicted to be secreted to form the extracellular matrix - or matrisome - remain elusive in the model organism C. elegans. Here, we used a bioinformatic approach combining gene orthology and prot...

Abstract COMP (cartilage oligomeric matrix protein) is a member of the thrombospondin family and forms homopentamers as well as mixed heterooligomers with its closely related family member TSP-4. COMP is long known to bind to collagens and to influence collagen fibril formation. Recent work indicates that already intracellular interaction with coll...
Article
Pigment epithelium-derived factor (PEDF) is a multifunctional extracellular protein. In addition to its known antiangiogenic and neurotrophic roles in collagen rich tissues, PEDF is thought to be involved in collagen fibril assembly due to its sequence specific binding to the collagen fibril and high expression in regions of active bone formation....

Heat shock protein 47 is an ER (endoplasmic reticulum) resident collagen-specific chaperone and essential for proper formation of the characteristic collagen triple helix. It preferentially binds to the folded conformation of its clients and accompanies them from the ER to the Golgi compartment where it releases them and is recycled back to the ER....
Article
Collagen XXVIII is the last discovered member of the collagen superfamily and thus has been only sparsely investigated. We studied collagen XXVIII in zebrafish to gain insight into its structure, evolution and expression. In contrast to human and mouse, the zebrafish genome contains four collagen XXVIII genes, col28a1a and -b, and col28a2a and -b....
Article
Hsp47 is an essential collagen specific chaperone that is crucial for proper formation of the collagen triple helix. KO-mice die at an early emybronic state and missense mutations are linked to severe forms of osteogenesis imperfecta (Ishida & Nagata, 2011). On the other hand, Hsp47 is strongly upregulated in fibrotic pathogenies and has in proof-o...

Fraser syndrome (FS) is a phenotypically variable, autosomal recessive disorder characterized by cryptophthalmus, cutaneous syndactyly and other malformations resulting from mutations in FRAS1, FREM2 and GRIP1. Transient embryonic epidermal blistering causes the characteristic defects of the disorder. Fras1, Frem1 and Frem2 form the extracellular F...

Collagen is the most abundant protein in animals and is a major component of the extracellular matrix in tissues such as skin and bone. A distinctive structural feature of all collagen types is a unique triple-helical structure formed by tandem repeats of the consensus sequence Xaa-Yaa-Gly, in which Xaa and Yaa frequently are proline and hydroxypro...

Using forward genetics, we have identified the genes mutated in two classes of zebrafish fin mutants. The mutants of the first class are characterized by defects in embryonic fin morphogenesis, which are due to mutations in a Laminin subunit or an Integrin alpha receptor, respectively. The mutants of the second class display characteristic blisteri...
