Rabbit anti Rat Collagen I antibody recognizes both native and heat denatured rat collagen type I. 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. Type I collagen (~95 kDa) is found in bone, cornea, skin and tendon.

Mutations in the encoding gene are associated with osteogenesis imperfecta (Sykes et al. 1990), Ehlers Danlos syndrome (Burrows et al. 1996), and idiopathic osteoporosis (Pernow et al. 2006).

Bio-Rad currently do not support the use Rabbit anti Rat Collagen I antibody in western Blotting. However, it has been reported that this antibody has been used successfully for the quantitation of collagen I in rabbit aortic tissue by western blotting (Valero-Muñoz et al. 2014).
