 Synonyms & Historicals
Collectins .
Collagenous Lectins .
Collectin .
Lectins, Collagenous .
A class of C-type lectins that target the carbohydrate structures found on invading pathogens. Binding of collectins to microorganisms results in their agglutination and enhanced clearance. Collectins form trimers that may assemble into larger oligomers. Each collectin polypeptide chain consists of four regions: a relatively short N-terminal region, a collagen-like region, an alpha-helical coiled-coil region, and carbohydrate-binding region. .
Colitis, Collagenous .
Collagenous Colitis .
A subtype of MICROSCOPIC COLITIS, characterized by chronic watery DIARRHEA of unknown origin, a normal COLONOSCOPY but abnormal histopathology on BIOPSY. Microscopic examination of biopsy samples taken from the COLON show larger-than-normal band of subepithelial COLLAGEN. .

Avicon .
Avitene .
Collagen Felt .
Collagen Fleece .
Collagenfleece .
Collastat .
Dermodress .
Microfibril Collagen Hemostat .
Pangen .
Zyderm .
alpha-Collagen .
Collagen Hemostat, Microfibril .
alpha Collagen .
A polypeptide substance comprising about one third of the total protein in mammalian organisms. It is the main constituent of SKIN; CONNECTIVE TISSUE; and the organic substance of bones (BONE AND BONES) and teeth (TOOTH). .
Lectins .
Isolectin .
Lectins, Animal .
Animal Lectins .
Isolectins .
Agglutinins, Plant .
Hemagglutinins, Plant .
Phytagglutinins .
Plant Agglutinins .
Proteins that share the common characteristic of binding to carbohydrates. Some ANTIBODIES and carbohydrate-metabolizing proteins (ENZYMES) also bind to carbohydrates, however they are not considered lectins. PLANT LECTINS are carbohydrate-binding proteins that have been primarily identified by their hemagglutinating activity (HEMAGGLUTININS). However, a variety of lectins occur in animal species where they serve diverse array of functions through specific carbohydrate recognition. .
Collagenases .
Collagen Peptidase .
Collagen-Degrading Enzyme .
Collagenase .
Collagen Degrading Enzyme .
Peptidase, Collagen .
Enzymes that catalyze the degradation of collagen by acting on the peptide bonds. .
Hoarding .
Collecting .
A persistent difficulty discarding or parting with possessions. .
