Breakable: Mr. Glass and Osteogenesis Imperfecta.
Posted by biochemistryquestions on October 28, 2008
This movie is called “Unbreakable”, in reference to the character played by Bruce Willis, but from the biochemical point of view, we are more interested in the character of Elijah, played by Samuel L. Jackson: the “Breakable” character, or “Mr. Glass”.
Elijah Price: “I have something called Osteogenesis Imperfecta. It’s a genetic disorder. I don’t make a particular protein very well and it makes my bones very low in density… very easy to break.”
