C1,2C ELISA Collagen Type I and II Cleavage Assay

Cat. # 60-1002-001

Intended use:

The C1,2C ELISA kit measures cartilage degradation. This assay with specific polyclonal antibody recognizes the α-chain fragments containing an approximate 8 amino acid sequence from the carboxy terminus of the three-quarter length piece produced by collagenase cleavage (MMP-1, MMP-8, MMP-13) of type II collagen. C1,2C antibodies demonstrate affinity for similarly cleaved human type I collagen α-chains.
