Collagen IV antibody
Collagen is located in the extracellular matrix of connective tissues. It is part of the interacting network of proteoglycans and proteins that provides a structural framework for both soft and calcified connective tissues. Collagen Type IV forms a two-dimensional reticulum and is a major component of the basal lamina.
Goat anti human collagen IV has been successfully employed for the demonstration of vasculature in developing rat pups using immunofluorescence techniques (Kermorvant-Duchemin et al. 2013).
