Collagen type VI is found as 5-10 nm diameter microfibrils (periodicity 100 nm) e.g. in placenta, skin, cartilage and cornea. 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. Human collagen type VI 100%, human collagen type I, II, III, IV and V <0.1%; human elastin and human laminin <0.1%; human fibronectin < 1% (RIA at 1:10.000 dilution).


Immunogen: Purified collagen type VI from human placenta

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: Human (cross-reactive with bovine, porcine, chicken, murine and rat tissue)


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

Working Concentration: (purified, lyophilized) 1:80 IFA, 1:500 - 1:1000 IHC(P)

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: Human placenta
