RelevanceUnlike most collagens, collagen XVII is a transmembrane protein. Collagen XVII is a structural component of hemidesmosomes, multiprotein complexes at the dermal epidermal basement membrane zone that mediate adhesion of keratinocytes to the underlying membrane. Mutations in the gene coding for collagen XVII are associated with both generalized atrophic benign and junctional epidermolysis bullosa. Two homotrimeric forms of type XVII collagen exist. The full length form is the transmembrane protein. A soluble form, referred to as either ectodomain or LAD 1, is generated by proteolytic processing of the full length form. Two transcript variants, one resulting from alternative splicing in the 3' UTR, have been identified for this gene.
Cellular localizationCell junction, hemidesmosome. Membrane; Single-pass type II membrane protein. Note=Localized along the plasma membrane of the hemidesmosome. 120 kDa linear IgA disease antigen and 97 kDa linear IgA disease antigen: Secreted, extracellular space, extracellular matrix, basement membrane.

IHC image of Collagen XVII staining in a section of frozen normal human skin*.
The section was fixed using 10% formaldehyde in 1XPBS for 10 minutes. No antigen retrieval step was performed prior to staining. Non-specific protein-protein interactions were then blocked in TBS containing 0.025% (v/v) Triton X-100, 0.3M (w/v) glycine and 1% (w/v) BSA for 1h at room temperature. The section was then incubated overnight at +4°C in TBS containing 0.025% (v/v) Triton X-100 and 1% (w/v) BSA with ab194723 at 1/100 dilution (shown in green) and counterstained using ab195884, Rat monoclonal to Tubulin (Alexa Fluor® 647), at 1/250 dilution (shown in red). Nuclear DNA was labelled with DAPI (shown in blue). The section was then mounted using Fluoromount®.
Image was taken with a confocal microscope (Leica-Microsystems, TCS SP8).
For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated), customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, antibody concentrations and incubation times.
