Bulleid, N.J. (2012) Solving the mystery of procollagen chain selectivity. Nature Structural and Molecular Biology, 19(10), pp. 977-978. (doi:10.1038/nsmb.2397)

The recently solved crystal structure of the procollagen C propeptide reveals the basis for chain selectivity as well as an unexpected asymmetry to this homotrimeric molecule. In addition, mapping disease-causing mutations to the structure demonstrates clear correlation between severity of disease and mutation location.
