COL3A1

A gene on chromosome 2q32.2 that encodes the pro-alpha1 chains of type-3 collagen, a fibrillar collagen found in extensible connective tissues (e.g., skin, lung, uterus, intestine and the vascular system), often in association with type-1 collagen.

Molecular pathology
COL3A1 mutations occur in Ehlers-Danlos syndrome type IV, and in aortic and arterial aneurysms.
