Protein Information
Name COL8A1
Synonyms C3orf7
Function Macromolecular component of the subendothelium. Major component of the Descemet's membrane (basement membrane) of corneal endothelial cells. Also component of the endothelia of blood vessels. Necessary for migration and proliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells and thus, has a potential role in the maintenance of vessel wall integrity and structure, in particular in atherogenesis.
Cellular Location Secreted, extracellular space, extracellular matrix, basement membrane
Tissue Location Expressed primarily in the subendothelium of large blood vessels. Also expressed in arterioles and venules in muscle, heart, kidney, spleen, umbilical cord, liver and lung and is also found in connective tissue layers around hair follicles, around nerve bundles in muscle, in the dura of the optic nerve, in cornea and sclera, and in the perichondrium of cartilaginous tissues. In the kidney, expressed in mesangial cells, glomerular endothelial cells, and tubular epithelial cells. Also expressed in mast cells, and in astrocytes during the repair process. Expressed in Descemet's membrane. Specifically expressed in peritoneal fibroblasts and mesothelial cells.

This gene encodes one of the two alpha chains of type VIIIcollagen. The gene product is a short chain collagen and a majorcomponent of the basement membrane of the corneal endothelium. Thetype VIII collagen fibril can be either a homo- or a heterotrimer.Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding the same isoformhave been observed.
