Collagen II in Mouse Chondrocytes. Collagen II was detected in immersion fixed mouse mesenchymal stem cell-differentiated chondrocytes using 10 µg/mL Sheep Anti-Mouse Collagen II Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF3615) for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained with the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL010) and counterstained with DAPI (blue).

Background: Collagen II

Mouse Type II Collagen is a 100 kDa fibrillar collagen found in cartilage, vitreous body and vertebral disk. It is synthesized as a 1459 amino acid (aa) preproprecursor that contains an N-terminal and a C-terminal proregion. Intracellularly, type II Collagen homotrimerizes into a fibril and is then secreted. The proregions are then cleaved by procollagenases and the processed homotrimer covalently crosslinks to other type II fibrils. Mature mouse Collagen II shares 95% and 98% aa sequence identity with human and rat Collagen II, respectively.
