Immunohistochemistry (paraffin)

Type II collagen is an alpha1(II)-trimer, which forms 67 nm cross-banded fibrils. Typically it can be observed in cartilage and various tumours. Collagens consist of a family of highly specialized glycoproteins of which at least 16 genetically distinct types are known to date. The basal unit of a collagen molecule consists of a triple-helical structure formed by 3 alpha-chains. Predominant amino acids are glycine, proline and hydroxproline. Regularly also lysines and hydroxylysines occur, which are responsible for cross-linkage and glycosylation of the protein chains. Different composition of alpha-chains and different glycosylation contribute to the high variability of collagens in different tissues and organs. Chicken collagen type II 100%, no crossreactivity with chicken collagen type I and III, no crossreactivity with human, mouse and rat collagen type II..


Immunogen: Purified collagen type II from fetal chicken cartilage

affinity purified antibody lyophilized from phosphate buffered solution; no BSA and preservative added!

Purification Method: affinity purified antibody lyophilized from phosphate buffered solution; no BSA and preservative added!

Concentration: app. 1 mg/ml

Secondary Reagents: Anti-rabbit IgG-conjugates, e.g. anti-rabbit IgG:FITC (Art. No. FI-1000) or anti-rabbit IgG:DyLight488 (Art. No. DI-1488).


Species Reactivity: Chicken


Incubation Time: IHC(P) 60 min at RT or 2-8°C over night

Working Concentration: (purified, lyophilized) IFA 1:40, IHC(P) 1:200 - 1:600

Pre-Treatment: After de-waxing the tissue slices they are treated with 0.2% hyaluronidase (app. 300 U/mg e.g. Art. No. HYA02-50) in TBS 15 min at 37°C. Thereafter non-specific binding is blocked by blocking serum or 3% BSA in TBS. For peroxidase systems blocking with 1% peroxide solution in TBS for 30 min at RT is recommended.

Positive Control: Chicken cartilage
