General description

Monoclonal Anti-Collagen Type IV (mouse IgG1 isotype) is derived from the COL-94 hybridoma produced by the fusion of mouse myeloma cells and splenocytes from BALB/c mice immunized with human collagen Type IV.

The composition of the extracellular matrix of all vertebrates is dominated by a class of molecules known as collagens, each with a unique feature suited to its function and location. Type IV collagen is a major constituent of basement membranes. This molecule is a continuous triple helix, about 400 nm in length, composed of at least two different α chain subunits termed α1 (IV) and α2 (IV) which may be composed of the same or different molecules. Upon proteolysis, fragments of 125 kDa, 95 kDa, and 60 kDa are released from a parent α1 (IV) chain, whereas fragments of 115 kDa, 80 kDa, and 45 kDa apparently originate from a distinct α2 (IV) chain.


Using immunohistochemical staining of basal laminae, the antibody recognizes an epitope located on the α1 and/or α2 chains of human collagen type IV. The antibody shows reactivity with native primate collagen type IV in ELISA and dot blot assay. Using the dot blot technique, the antibody shows no cross-reactivity with human collagen types I, II, III, V, VI and VII, human vitronectin, fibronectin and chondroitin sulfate types A, B and C.
