Cat.No. CSI 006-01
Mouse monoclonal antibody
CSI 006-01 is highly specific for type V collagen. It has been shown to have no cross-reactivity with type I, III and VI collagens by ELISA and immunoblotting. There is no evidence for cross-reactivity with other connective tissue proteins (laminin, fibronectin, elastin).
Acid-digested pepsin soluble dog type V collagen
Available in 200 µL and 1 mL size.1 mg/mL +/- 15%. See Certificate of Analysis for details.
Type V collagen is a minor component of the connective tissue, although it is present in many different types of connective tissue. Patients with defects in the type V collagen (Ehlers-Danlos syndrome) have weakend connective tissue characterized by hyperstrechable joints and fragile, easily bruisable skin.
CSI 006-01 can be used for detection of collagens by ELISA. CSI 006-01 binds poorly to Collagen V when tested in ELISA with Collagen V coated directly onto the microtiter well.
In immunoblotting CSI 006-01 detects human type V collagen only in its native triple helix form.
CSI 006-01 has been used succesfully for immunohistology on paraffin embedded (1) and frozen unfixed sections of human (2), bovine (3) and dog (4) skin, on rabbit (1) and foetal bovine cornea (4), and of new dog tissue associated with a biomaterial implant (5). If fixation of tissue is required, acetone or ethanol is recommended.
