Type X collagen associates with collagen type II fibrils (R-HSA-2213208) [Homo sapiens]


In vivo type X collagen is found associated with cartilage fibrils in the form of fine filaments (Schmidt & Linsenmayer 1990), which may represent hexagonal lattices that have collapsed during sample preparation (Gordon & Hahn 2010).
