|Other Names||Collagen alpha-1(XVIII) chain, Endostatin, COL18A1|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP8852a was selected from the N-term region of human COL18A1. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||COLA18A probably plays a major role in determining the retinal structure as well as in the closure of the neural tube.|
|Cellular Location||Secreted, extracellular space, extracellular matrix|
|Tissue Location||Present in multiple organs with highest levels in liver, lung and kidney|

COL18A1 is encoding the alpha chain of type XVIII collagen. This collagen is one of the multiplexins, extracellular matrix proteins that contain multiple triple-helix domains (collagenous domains) interrupted by non-collagenous domains. The proteolytically produced C-terminal fragment of type XVIII collagen is endostatin, a potent antiangiogenic protein.
