Type III collagen, [a1(III)]3 ,is an approx. 300 kDa molecule, found predominantly in skin, blood vessels, liver, placenta, tongue, and thymus. Collagen type III forms cofibrils with type I and/or V collagens in a number of tissues of mesenchymal origin, such as skin, tendon, ligaments, and bone. This collagen type is involved, directly or indirectly in several genetic diseases, including Ehlers-Danlos type IV disease.

Collagen III is a fibrillar collagen that is found in extensible connective tissues such as skin, lung, and the vascular system, frequently in association with type I Collagen. Mutations in the gene are associated with Ehlers Danlos syndrome type IV, and with aortic and arterial aneurysms. Although alternate transcripts have been detected for this gene, they are the result of mutations; these mutations alter splicing, often leading to the exclusion of multiple exons.
