Clone Host Grade Applications
Monoclonal Mouse Purified E B IH
Collagen IV antibody may be useful for the demonstration of basal lamina in invasive epithelial tumors. This antibody enables the discrimination between benign and malignant forms of soft tissue tumors (integrity of basement membranes is impaired in the latter case).
The extent of expression of the basement membrane component type IV collagen may be correlated with the degree of differentiation of basement membrane producing neoplasms. Neoplastic cells of invasive carcinomas often lack a continuous basement membrane. In diagnostic histopathology antibodies to type IV collagen may help to distinguish between non-invasive (benign or in situ) and invasive lesions. Furthermore the antibody is important in the differential diagnosis of bullous lesions in dermatopathology. In in vitro studies with endothelial cells and smooth muscle cells the antibody is helpful in detection of production collagen type IV.
Catalog #C7510-53B
ApplicationsSuitable for use in ELISA, Immunohistochemistry and Western Blot. Other applications not tested.
Recommended DilutionsImmunohistochemistry (frozen): 1:20; Exclusively stains basement membranes on cryostat sections of human tissues such as kidney, liver and heart. Stains canine Collagen IV on cryostat sections. Fixation with acetone for 5 min. at -20°C is recommended.
Immunohistochemistry (paraffin): 1:20; Stains canine Collagen IV on paraffin sections. Fixation with neutral formalin and proteolytic pretreatment with pepsin is recommended. Paraffin material generally renders less successful results.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
