<div><p>Cyclophilin B (CyPB), encoded by <i>PPIB</i>, is an ER-resident peptidyl-prolyl <i>cis-trans</i> isomerase (PPIase) that functions independently and as a component of the collagen prolyl 3-hydroxylation complex. CyPB is proposed to be the major PPIase catalyzing the rate-limiting step in collagen folding. Mutations in <i>PPIB</i> cause recessively inherited osteogenesis imperfecta type IX, a moderately severe to lethal bone dysplasia. To investigate the role of CyPB in collagen folding and post-translational modifications, we generated <i>Ppib<sup>−/−</sup></i> mice that recapitulate the OI phenotype. Knock-out (KO) mice are small, with reduced femoral a...
