Technical Data
Collagen Type V
Type V collagen is found in tissues containing type I collagen and appears to regulate the assembly of heterotypic fibers composed of both type I and type V collagen. This gene product is closely related to type XI collagen and it is possible that the collagen chains of types V and XI constitute a single collagen type with tissue-specific chain combinations. Mutations in this gene are associated with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, types I and II.

Suitable for use in ELISA, Western Blot and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
ELISA: 15ug will detect 15ng of bovine Collagen Type V with no crossreactivity with other Collagens. Higher levels of antibody may be necessary to detect lower concentrations of Collagen.
Immunohistochemistry: Frozen sections. Note: Some tissues may require unmasking of the epitope using dilute (10mM) Acetic Acid or collegenase.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Technical Note:
Some Collagen samples can be contaminated with other Collagen Types. When purified Collagen is used in an application the purity of the Collagen sample should be verified by SDS-PAGE to minimize the risk of false positives.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
