Recombinant Collagen IV [COL4/8657R]



Collagen Type IV is a major component of the basement membrane and plays an important role in cell adhesion, migration, differentiation and growth. Collagen Type IV express at the basement membranes in a variety of tissues including kidney, muscle, lymph nodes, lung, tendon and spleen. Collagen Type IV has been shown to be useful in differentiating microinvasive from in situ ductal carcinomas of the breast. Other Collagen Type IV studies include use in pancreatic adenocarcinoma and chronic pancreatitis, nephrosclerosis and other kidney diseases, oral squamous cell carcinoma, laryngeal cancers, ovarian cancers and cervical cancers.

Mol. Weight of Antigen


  • Type IV collagen is the major structural component of glomerular basement membranes (GBM), forming a 'chicken-wire' meshwork together with laminins, proteoglycans and entactin/nidogen.
  • Arresten, comprising the C-terminal NC1 domain, inhibits angiogenesis and tumor formation. The C-terminal half is found to possess the anti-angiogenic activity. Specifically inhibits endothelial cell proliferation, migration and tube formation.

Known Applications & Suggested Dilutions

  • Immunohistochemistry (Formalin-fixed) (1-2ug/ml for 30 minutes at RT),(Staining of formalin-fixed tissues requires heating tissue sections in 10mM Tris with 1mM EDTA, pH 9.0, for 45 min at 95&degC followed by cooling at RT for 20 minutes),Optimal dilution for a specific application should be determined.
