Mouse anti Human Collagen VII
- Product Type
- Monoclonal Antibody
- Collagen VII
|Mouse anti Human collagen VII antibody, clone LH7.2 recognizes the carboxy-terminus of type VII collagen (Kirkham et al. 1989). Collagen VII is a basement membrane protein in stratified squamous epithelia which is involved in membrane organization through interaction with other ECM components (Gammon et al. 1992). Collagen VII is composed of three identical alpha chains, each having an amino-terminal non-collagenous domain and a carboxy-terminal collagenous domain.
Mouse anti Human collagen VII, clone LH7.2 has proved effective for immunohistochemical identification of basement membrane in human skin (Watson et al. 2001).
