Type III Collagen is found co-localized with Type I Collagen in tissues, blood vessels and skin. Type III Collagen is a homotrimeric procollagen comprised of three identical pro a, (III) chains.1 Collagen III is important for the development of skin and the cardiovascular system and for maintaining normal physiological functions in adult life. Collagen III has been used for studies of Collagen I fibrillogenesis in normal cardiovascular development. Many of the same properties and functions of animal derived collagens can be duplicated using recombinant human collagens.
