Collagen Type IV, humanCatalog number: CO60411
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. Human collagen type IV 100%, human collagen types I, II, III, and V <0.1%, human fibronectin and laminin < 0.1% (RIA at 1:10000 dilution).

IHC(P), IFA, ELISA, RIA, IB/WB
Incubation Time: IHC(P) 60 min at RT or 2-8°C over night
Working Concentration: (purified, lyophilized) IFA ? 1:320, IHC(P) ? 1:4000, ELISA ? 1:4000 (OD ? 500)
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 skin, placenta or lens capsule
