Human (tested or 100% immunogen sequence identity)
IHC - Paraffin, ELISA
Specificity and Use
Collagen IV antibody was raised against collagen Type IV from human and bovine placenta.
Typically less than 1% cross-reactivity against other types of collagens was detected by ELISA against purified standards. Some class specific anti-collagens may be specific for three-dimensional epitopes which may result in diminished reactivity with denatured collagen or formalin- fixed, paraffin embedded tissues. Reacts with most mammalian Type IV collagens and has negligible cross-reactivity with Type I, II, III, V or VI collagens. Non-specific cross-reactivity with other human serum proteins or non-collagen extracellular matrix proteins is negligible.
Suitable for use in ELISA, Immunohistochemistry (formalin- fixed, paraffin embedded tissues).
