Procollagen Type III, human, bovineCatalogue number: CO23311-0.1
Collagen type III is synthesized as a homo-trimeric pro-collagen comprising three identical pro-alpha(III)-chains. It has been reported that procollagen type III is processed extracellularly at the ECM and can be found by immunostaining intracellular as well as extracellular. Collagens consist of a family of highly specialized glycoproteins of which at least 16 genetically distinct types are known to date. The basal unit of a collagen molecule consists of a triple-helical structure formed by 3 alpha-chains. Predominant amino acids are glycine, proline and hydroxproline. Regularly also lysines and hydroxylysines occur, which are responsible for cross-linkage and glycosylation of the protein chains. Different composition of alpha-chains and different glycosylation contribute to the high variability of collagens in different tissues and organs. Human and bovine procollagen type III (PIIIP) 100%; human and bovine procollagen type and collagen type I <0.1% in RIA at 1:200 dilution..

IHC(P), IFA, ELISA, RIA, IB/WB
Incubation Time: IHC(P) 60 min at RT or 2-8°C over night
Working Concentration: (purified, lyophilized) IFA ? 1:40, IHC(P) ? 1:500, ELISA 1:100 - 1:200 (OD ? 500), RIA >1:200
Pre-Treatment: After de-waxing the tissue slices they are treated with 0.2% hyaluronidase (app. 300 U/mg e.g. Art. No. HYA02-50) in TBS 15 min at 37°C. Thereafter non-specific binding is blocked by blocking serum or 3% BSA in TBS. For peroxidase systems blocking with 1% peroxide solution in TBS for 30 min at RT is recommended.
Positive Control: Human or bovine skin and liver
