This antibody is specific to COL4A4.
Collagen IV is a major constituent of the basement membranes along with laminins and enactins. Collagen IV is composed of alpha 1 IV chain and alpha 2 IV chain in 2:1 ratio. Collagen IV can form insoluble fibers with high tensile strength. Antibody to collagen IV is useful in detecting the loss of parts of basement membrane in carcinomas.
