A-1). A-2). N. e. collagen types II, V/XI and IX. In the case of collagen types II and V/XI, these are synthesized as procollagens that then undergo processing (cleavage with N- and C-proteinases) prior to incorporation into fibrils. The dotted line represents the mature collagen molecule that remains after processing. The mature type II collagen has short telopeptides remaining after processing Additional 69 amino acid domain in type IIA procollagen (see text) represented by the double line (=); this is also the case for the C-terminus of the type V/XI collagen, but a large part of the N-propeptide is retained.

A-1). However, whilst the C-propeptide is removed by processing, the N-propeptide is only partially processed and a large globular region is retained on the type V/XI collagen molecule [10]. The type V/XI collagen assembles into heterotypic (mixed composition) fibrils in the vitreous along with type II and type IX collagen. Studies of other tissues demonstrate that type V/XI collagen has roles in nucleating collagen fibril formation and regulating collagen fibril diameter [10]. c. Type IX Collagen Type IX collagen is not a fibril-forming collagen although it is found in the surface of collagen fibrils.
