Technical Data
Collagen IV (Collagen Alpha-1(IV) Chain, Collagen IV Alpha 1 Polypeptide, Collagen Of Basement Membrane Alpha 1 Chain, Collagen Type IV Alpha 1, COL4A1, Collagen Alpha-2(IV) Chain, Collagen IV Alpha 2 Polypeptide, Collagen Of Basement Membrane Alpha 2 Cha
Collagen type IV is a major componant of basement membranes, such as those associated with capillaries and within glomeruli. This antibody will help detect col- logen type IV and determine the presence of an intact basal lamina in normal tissues or the loss of structure as seen in various carcinomas.

Suitable for use in Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Immunohistochemistry: 1:100-1:200 for 1 hr. at RT
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Positive Control:
Kidney (basement membranes staining pattern)
