  • Function

    Type X collagen is a product of hyperthrophic chondrotocytes and has been localized to presumptive mineralization zones of hyaline cartilage.
  • Involvement in disease

    Defects in COL10A1 are the cause of Schmid type metaphyseal chondrodysplasia (SMCD) [MIM:156500]. SMCD is a dominantly inherited disorder of the osseous skeleton. The cardinal features of the phenotype are mild short stature, coxa vara and a waddling gait. Radiography usually shows sclerosis of the ribs, flaring of the metaphyses, and a wide irregular growth plate, especially of the knees. A variant form of SMCD is spondylometaphyseal dysplasia Japanese type. It is characterized by spinal involvement comprising mild platyspondyly, vertebral body abnormalities, and end-plate irregularity.
  • Sequence similarities

    Contains 1 C1q domain.
  • 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

  • Immunofluorescence analysis of mouse bone marrow stromal cells, staining Collagen X with ab58632.

    Cells were fixed with formaldehyde, permeabilized with 0.2% Triton X-100 before incubating with primary antibody (1/50) overnight. An AlexaFluor®488-conjugated anti-rabbit IgG (1/500) was used as the secondary antibody.
  • Anti-Collagen X antibody (ab58632) at 1/500 dilution + HT 1080 (Human fibrosarcoma) Whole Cell Lysate at 10 µg

    Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (HRP) preadsorbed (ab97080) at 1/5000 dilution

    Developed using the ECL technique.

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Observed band size: 66 + 64 kDa
    why is the actual band size different from the predicted?
    Additional bands at: 37 kDa, 50 kDa, 98 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

    Exposure time: 150 seconds

    The band observed at 64 kDa could potentially be a cleaved form of Collagen X due to the presence of a 18 amino acid signal peptide.

Antibody ab58632 is our recommendation, given the number of references that have used it for IHC of FFPE tissue. Here is a link to the list of references, annotated "IHC-P" for paraffin.

The four other antibodies that have been tested in this application should be effective, at least for the species that are listed on the datasheets, but they do not have as much data. My second choice would be the mouse monoclonal ab49945, depending on the species of your samples. For instance, I would not recommend it for staining mouse tissue, if there is endogenous mouse IgG in the sample that a secondary anti-mouse IgG antibody might react with. However, two references do have data from immuno-compromised mice.

Thank you for contacting us. The anti-Collagen X antibody ab58632 is a whole serum antibody and the concentration has not been determined. Generally concentrations are only relevant for purified antibodies, since products from ascites or whole serum may contains proteins other than the target protein. We recommend that you follow the suggested dilution for your application, which for IHC is 1/50-1/100.

I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.

Thank you for contacting us.

The antibody is whole, unpurified antiserum, and the antibody concentration is not determined. Dilutions for some common applications are suggested on the datasheet. The appropriate isotype control for this antibody is whole normal rabbit serum, such as ab7487, diluted by the same factor as ab58632.

Thank you for your call yesterday and for your patience while I have been in touch with the lab. For ab58632, we recommend using the antibody at 1:50-1:100 and incubating overnight. The sections were treated with 0.25% trypsin in 1 mM EDTA for 3 minutes at 37C to expose the epitope. These alterations should improve the staining results with the antibody, however if the problem persists, I would be happy to send a different antibody to try or alternatively issue a credit or refund. Please keep me updated about any new results, and I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you for your response. It is always worth running a "no primary" (only secondary antibody) control to see/check if the secondary antibody alone may cause non-specific signal. In order to reduce the any potential non-specific signal, I would advise the following steps: 1) block the non-specific binding sites with 5% BSA (in TBS-T) for or with 10 % goat serum (host species of the secondary antibody) 1 hr at RT, 2) block endogenous peroxidase activity with H2O2 , You can find some more information on blocking at this site: I hope this helps and if I can assist further, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you for your enquiry and your interest. I can confirm that ab58632 has been tested and characterized for IHC (both on frozen and on formalin-embedded tissue sections) and it recognizes Mouse, Rat, Rabbit, Cow, Human Collagen X. Since the isotype is rabbit IgG, the secondary antibody should recognize this type of immunoglobulin. Using our advanced search engine, you can conduct a search for the most suitable secondary antibodies i.e. select the host species, conjugation, purification etc. If you need any further assistance in the future, please do not hesitate to contact me.
