Technical Data
Collagen Type I
Collagen is an inert, rigid protein found predominantly in skin, ligaments, bones and teeth. Its most distinctive attribute, essential to a transmitter of mechanical force, is inelasticity. Its fundamental structural unit is tropo-collagen, a molecular rod about 2600 in length and 15 in diameter and 300kD molecular weight. In tendons these macromolecules, grouped as collagen fibrils, run parallel to the axis. In skin the fibrils are interlaced and branched.

Suitable for use in RIA, Immunofluorescence, ELISA and Immunohistochemistry. Not suitable for Western Blot. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
