Specifically reacts with the hCL(VI). This is a purified mouse monoclonal antibody to human type VI collagen. VI-26 does not react with denatured or reduced type VI collagen, although this antibody does recognize the the triple helix consisting of alpha1(VI), alpha 2(VI) alpha3(gamma). The epitope has not been mapped and the monoclonal is know not to react with collagens I, II, III, IV or V in native assays.


Anti-Collagen Type VI Antibody, clone VI-26 detects level of Collagen Type VI & has been published & validated for use in ELISA, IH(P).
Immunohistochemistry on acetone fixed paraffin-embedded tissues. Formalin fixation is not recommended. Antigen recovery is treatment with 0.04% trypsin in 0.01M CaCl(2) 0.05M Tris-HCL pH 7.6, 37°C for 10 minutes before the non-specific peroxidase block.


Optimal working dilutions must be determined by end user.
