Collagen type I polyclonal antibody (rabbit anti-mouse) purified from rabbits injected with type I collagen that was extracted/purified from mouse skin.




Type I collagen is the most abundant form of collagen in the human body and is synthesized mainly by fibroblasts, osteoblasts, odontoblasts and chondroblasts. It is located in the extracellular matrix of many tissues of the body including cartilage, bone, tendon, skin and the sclera of the eye. Type I collagen is composed of two pro-α1(I) chains, produced from the COL1A1 gene, and one pro-α2(I) chain, produced from the COL1A2 gene. Mutations in the genes that produce collagen type I are responsible for causing various health conditions including Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, osteogenesis imperfecta, osteoporosis and Caffey disease.

The Rabbit Anti-Mouse Collagen Type I Polyclonal Antibody was used in immunoblot studies. Collagen from cervical tissue was extracted with 7 M Urea, 0.1M sodium phosphate with 1% protease inhibitor overnight at 4 °C. The protein concentration was determined using a Bradford protein assay. Ten micrograms of protein were loaded on a 4%–20% Tris-HCl polyacrylamide gel and electrophoresed at 100 V. After overnight transfer to nitrocellulose membrane and Ponceu S staining to assess equal loading of protein, immunoblotting was performed using rabbit polyclonal anti-mouse collagen I.

The Rabbit Anti-Mouse Collagen Type I Polyclonal Antibody was used in immunoblot, immunocytochemistry and immunoprecipitation studies of wild-type mouse embryonic fibroblasts (MEFs) and Calreticulin (-/-) MEFs. In immunoblot analysis, the antibody recognized the three forms of the alpha(I) chain of collagen type I: the unprocessed form with the N- and C-propeptides, the N-propeptide cleaved; and the fully processed alpha(I) band. In immunocytochemistry, the collagen type I primary antibody was used at 1:200 dilution for 2 hrs, followed by the secondary antibody AlexaFluor 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG used at 1:300 for 1 hr. In immunoprecipitation studies, beads were incubated with 6 ug of the antibody.
