We have shown that a variant within COL5A1, which encodes a subunit of type V collagen, is associated with injury and performance phenotypes. Although seemingly unrelated, these phenotypes are directly or indirectly associated with the mechanical properties of musculoskeletal soft tissue. We therefore hypothesize that variants in the COL5A1 gene alters fibril architecture and structure, and thereby mechanical properties.
