Collagen Type IV, porcineCatalog number: CO20491-0.1
Type IV Collagen is a non-fibrillary network of different alpha-chains: alpha 1(IV) to-alpha 6(IV). It is typically found in basal membranes of different organs (e.g. skin, lens, lung, kidney). 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. Porcine collagen type IV 100%, porcine collagens type I, II, and III <0.1%, porcine elastin, fibronectin and laminin < 0.1% (RIA at 1:5000 dilution).

IHC(P), IFA, ELISA, RIA, IB/WB
Incubation Time: IHC(P) 60 min at RT or 2-8°C over night
Working Concentration: IFA 1:80, IHC(P) 1:500, ELISA >1:200
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: Porcine skin or liver
