Collagen Type II Cleavage Assay (C2C ELISA)

Cat. # 60-1001-001

Intended use:

The C2C ELISA kit measures cartilage degradation. This assay with specific monoclonal antibody to type II collagen primary cleavage site recognizes the α-chain fragments containing an approximate 9 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.
