Background

Bovine Collagen Type II (Nasal Cartilage) is one of a family of proteins found particularly in the flesh and connective tissues of mammals (approximately one-third of the body's total protein). Over two dozen types of collagen have been described; Type II is found predominantly in hyaline cartilage (50% of the protein in hyaline is collagen type II) and is also found in the vitreous humor of the eye.

Target Details

COL2A1  - View All COL2A1 Products
Bovine Collagen Type II (Nasal Cartilage) has been prepared from bovine nasal cartilage and is chromatographically and immunologically pure. Bovine Collagen Type II (Nasal Cartilage) is free from other collagens, serum proteins and non-collagen extracellular matrix proteins.  Bovine Collagen Type II (Nasal Cartilage) reacts with anti-Collagen Type II.  Reaction with Rockland’s anti-Collagen I, III, IV, V or VI is negligible.

Application Details

SDS-PAGE
Bovine Collagen Type II is tested by SDS-Page and can be utilized as a control or standard reagent in Western Blotting and ELISA experiments.

Formulation

1.0 mg/ml by modified Lowry assay
0.5 M Acetic Acid
0.01% (w/v) Sodium Azide

Shipping & Handling

Wet Ice
Store vial at 4° C prior to opening. Bovine Collagen Type II (Nasal Cartilage) is stable at 4° C as an undiluted liquid. Dilute only prior to immediate use.
Expiration date is six (6) months from date of receipt.

What is the source of the collagen proteins?

Collagen proteins are purified from various sources including bovine or human placenta, skin, nasal tissue, and knee cartilage. The purity of the protein is analyzed by SDS-PAGE.

How are the collagen proteins purified?

The proteins were purified by a proprietary method that includes mechanical separation and salt precipitation. Due to the nature and close association of certain collagen proteins, it is difficult to fully separate each collagen.

In what format are the collagen proteins provided?

Collagen proteins are provided in liquid format at a concentration of around 1 mg/mL. The collagen proteins are solubilized, maintaining their native structure. No enzymatic treatment is performed. The low pH of the buffer is essential in maintaining the solubility of the collagen protein.

In what buffer are the collagen proteins provided?

0.5 M Acetic Acid, pH 2.5 with 0.01% (w/v) Sodium Azide.

What are the recommended SDS-PAGE conditions for collagen proteins?

The recommended buffer for SDS-PAGE is 2X SDS buffer with 8 M Urea. The low pH of the buffer maintains the solubility of the collagen proteins. Also, low-density gels such as 3-8% Tris Acetate should be used. Collagen proteins can be reduced with DTT.

What are the recommended storage conditions for collagen proteins?

Collagen proteins should always be stored at 4°C. It is important to never let the collagen proteins freeze because this will degrade the protein. Please be sure to maintain 4°C temperature during assays such as SDS-PAGE.

How was the concentration determined?

The concentration of the collagen proteins was measured by absorbance via nanodrop at 205 nm. When measuring concentration, please be sure to blank with the same buffer as the protein product (0.5 M Acetic Acid).

Are collagen proteins suitable for cell culture?

Since no testing for endotoxin or other contaminants was performed, we do not recommend the use of this product for cell culture.
