COL3A1 Collagen type III occurs in most soft connective tissues along with type I collagen. Involved in regulation of cortical development. Is the major ligand of ADGRG1 in the developing brain and binding to ADGRG1 inhibits neuronal migration and activates the RhoA pathway by coupling ADGRG1 to GNA13 and possibly GNA12. Belongs to the fibrillar collagen family. 2 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
