Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/1000 - 1/10000. Detects a band of approximately 140 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 109 kDa).
  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for ICC/IF,IHC-P or IP.
  • Target

    • Function
      Collagen VI acts as a cell-binding protein.
    • Involvement in disease
      Defects in COL6A1 are a cause of Bethlem myopathy (BM) [MIM:158810]. BM is a rare autosomal dominant proximal myopathy characterized by early childhood onset (complete penetrance by the age of 5) and joint contractures most frequently affecting the elbows and ankles.
      Defects in COL6A1 are a cause of Ullrich congenital muscular dystrophy (UCMD) [MIM:254090]; also known as Ullrich scleroatonic muscular dystrophy. UCMD is an autosomal recessive congenital myopathy characterized by muscle weakness and multiple joint contractures, generally noted at birth or early infancy. The clinical course is more severe than in Bethlem myopathy.
    • Sequence similarities
      Belongs to the type VI collagen family.
      Contains 3 VWFA domains.
    • Post-translational
      Prolines at the third position of the tripeptide repeating unit (G-X-Y) are hydroxylated in some or all of the chains.
    • Cellular localization
      Secreted > extracellular space > extracellular matrix.
