DESCRIPTION
Also known as DPY5_CAEEL, dpy-5. Nematode cuticles are composed largely of collagen-like proteins. The cuticle functions both as an exoskeleton and as a barrier to protect the worm from its environment. Collagen polypeptide chains are complexed within the cuticle by disulfide bonds and other types of covalent cross-links.
