Risico op weefselbeschadiging

Het COL1A1 gen bouwt de belangrijkste collageenketen die de sterkte van ligamenten, pezen en gewrichtscapsules beïnvloedt. Deze sterkte beïnvloedt de mobiliteit van gewrichten zoals schouders, knieën en enkels. Hogere niveaus van dit type collageen zorgen voor beter ondersteunde gewrichten en een verminderd risico op letsel.
