Overview:
This database contains all available information on variants in the collagen gene, that may lead to the development of the genetic disorder osteogenesis imperfecta.

The genes in which these variations were found to appear are COL1A1, COL1A2, BMP1, CRTAP, FKBP10, IFITM5, LEPRE1, PLOD2, PPIB, SERPINF1, SERPINH1, SP7, TMEM38B and WNT1.

When variations take place in the type III collagen gene, COL3A1, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome type IV is usually the outcome.

Classical Ehlers-Danlos syndrome is most often caused by variations in the type V collagen genes, COL5A1 and COL5A2 .

Copies of the two papers that describe the database are available for download in Adobe Acrobat format.
