Gene Information

human ... COL7A1(1294)

General description

Collagen is a fibrous protein present in the extracellular framework of all vertebrates. Collagen type VII is the crucial component of anchoring fibrils and mutation in type VII collagen gene (COL7A1) leads to epidermolysis bullosa dystrophica[1]. Monoclonal anti-collagen, type VII antibody can be used to distinguish invasive melanoma from non-invasive melanoma by visualizing the appearance and integrity of epidermal basement membrane. It can also be used in immunoblotting. Mouse anti-collagen type VII antibody reacts specifically with an epitope located on collagenase digested type VII collagen (150 kDa). The product also reacts with the basement membrane zone of stratified squamous epithelia of sheep, pig, bovine, guinea pig, goat and human.
Collagen type VII alpha 1 chain (COL7A1) is majorly expressed in skin, secreted by keratinocytes and fibroblasts.[2][3] The gene is located on human chromosome 3p21.31.[4]

Monoclonal Anti-Collagen, Type VII antibody produced in mouse has been used in immuno-gold labelling.[5]
Monoclonal anti-collagen type VII antibody can be used as a primary antibody in virus titration[6]. It can also be used for the localization of type VII collagen in different immunochemical assays like dot blot, immunocytochemistry and ELISA.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Collagen type VII alpha 1 chain (COL7A1) is required for epithelium-to-stroma anchorage in skin, mucosa and cornea.[2] It is considered as an immediate-early response gene for transforming growth factor β (TGF-β)/SMAD (mothers against decapentaplegic) signaling pathway.[7]
