|Application ||IHC, WB|
|Calculated MW||140 KDa|
|Other Names||Collagen alpha-1(I) chain, Alpha-1 type I collagen, COL1A1|
|Target/Specificity||Synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acid residues specific to the collagen 1, alpha 1 telopeptide conjugated to KLH.|
|Dilution||WB~~ 1:1000 |
|Antibody Specificity||Specific for the ~ 140 kDa telopeptide portion of the collagen I α1polypeptide. The antibody works well for immunohistochemistry on paraformaldehyde-fixedsections with a simple antigen-retrieval protocol (incubate slides for 20 minutes at 90º C in 10mM sodium citrate (pH 6.0)/ 0.1 % Tween-20). Note that in paraffin sections of formaldehydefixedfibrotic mouse lung tissue, the antibody recognizes mature collagen I that has formedfibrils in the extracellular matrix.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||Collagen I α1 Telopeptide Sequence Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|

Collagen is an extracellular matrix protein that serves as a scaffold defining the shape and mechanical properties of many tissues and organs including skin, tendon, artery walls, fibrocartilage, bone and teeth. Type 1 collagen is the must abundant protein in mammals. Collagens are synthesized with N-terminal and C-terminal propeptides that are cleaved during maturation and secretion. After cleavage of the propeptides, the most N-terminal and C-terminal remaining sequences are known as telopeptides. Mutations in the collagen 1, alpha 1 gene (COL1A1) are known to cause osteogenesis imperfecta (aka brittle bone disease) (Byers 1989). Furthermore, mutations found in the fist 90 residues of the helical region of alpha 1 collagen have been implicated in the prevention or delayed removal of the procollagen N-propeptide leading to a combined osteogenesis imperfecta and Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) phenotype (Cabral et al., 2005).
