Collagen-like tail subunit

This gene encodes the subunit of a collagen-like molecule associated with acetylcholinesterase in skeletal muscle. Each molecule is composed of three identical subunits. Each subunit contains a proline-rich attachment domain (PRAD) that binds an acetylcholinesterase tetramer to anchor the catalytic subunit of the enzyme to the basal lamina. Mutations in this gene are associated with endplate acetylcholinesterase deficiency. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.

Ohtsuka et al., In J Mol Neurosci, Jul 2014

Layzer et al., San Francisco, United States. In Muscle Nerve, Nov 2013
CONCLUSIONS: We hypothesize that MuSK antibodies may induce these phenotypes through disruptive actions at the NMJ, in particular the binding of acetylcholinesterase (AChE) to MuSK via its collagen Q (ColQ) tail, producing a reduction in synaptic AChE activity.
