Polyclonal Rabbit Affinity Purified E IH IF RIA
Type I collagen is the most common of the collagens in vertebrates. It comprises up to 90% of the skeletons of the mammals, and it is also widespread all over the body. In addition to bones, it is found in skin, tendons, ligaments, cornea, intervertebral disks, dentine, arteries and granulation tissues among other locations. Even cartilage, which mainly contains type II collagen, contains of some type I collagen. It is also widespread in the animal kingdom, from invertebrates to vertebrates, and moreover it is restricted to animals; plants do not have true collagens. Type I collagen is also important in other respects. For example, it is a large component of gelatin (JelloTM) and in many biomaterials, indeed, leather is mostly composed of type I collagen. The importance of type I collagen for medical research is that it is involved in many human and animal diseases, including fibrosis, osteoporosis, cancer, atherosclerosis etc. Because of of its wide distribution thoughtout the body, the monitoring of the breakdown of type I collagen molecule is fequently used to monitor the physiological changes in tissues and can be used as a diagnostic tool in various pathological conditions.
