MA1-26150 detects Collagen V from human samples.
COL5A1 encodes an alpha chain for one of the lowabundance fibrillar collagens. Fibrillar collagen molecules aretrimers that can be composed of one or more types of alpha chains.Type V collagen is found in tissues containing type I collagen andappears to regulate the assembly of heterotypic fibers composed ofboth type I and type V collagen. COL5A1 product is closelyrelated to type XI collagen and it is possible that the collagenchains of types V and XI constitute a single collagen type withtissue-specific chain combinations. Mutations in this gene areassociated with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, types I and II.
