The development of type-specific antibodies is dependent on NON-DENATURED three-dimensional epitopes.
Secreted and Cell surface (Potential).
Negligible cross-reactivity with Type I, II, III, V or VI collagens. Non-specific cross reaction of anti-collagen antibodies with other human serum proteins or non-collagen extracellular matrix proteins is negligible.
Immunogen affinity purified
Test in a species/application not listed above to receive a full credit towards a future purchase.
Anti-Collagen antibodies have been used for indirect trapping ELISA for quantitation of antigen in serum using a standard curve, for immunoprecipitation and for native (non-denaturing, non-dissociating) PAGE and western blotting for highly sensitive qualitative analysis. Greatly diminished reactivity and selectivity of the antibody will result if denaturing and reducing conditions are used for SDS-PAGE and immunoblotting. Use in frozen sections reported in scientific literature (PMID 28672034). Use in Immunocytochemistry/immunofluorescence reported in scientific literature (PMID : 29162797).
This antibody is expected to react with Type IV collagens from most mammalian species. Rat reactivity reported in scientific literature (PMID: 16774905)

This antibody is well suited to detect extracellular matrix proteins in normal as well as disease state tissues. Disruption of tissue organization is the hallmark of neoplasia. Malignant lesions can be distinguished from benign by examining the breakdown of basement membranes and loss of 3-dimensional architecture. Malignant cells are presumed to use matrix metalloproteases to degrade barriers created by the extracellular matrix which then allows metastasis to occur. Collagenases, stomelysins and gelatinases can collectively degrade all of the various components of the extracellular matrix, including fibrillar and non-fibrillar collagens and basement membrane glycoproteins.
