M2139 binds to the triple helical J1 epitope on collagen II. Binding to collagen II epitopes was determined in bead-based flow immunoassay as median fluorescence intensity (MFI). Triple helical (Gly-Pro-Hyp)x11 is a synthetic control peptide with 11 repeats of the Gly-Pro-Hyp sequence and mimics the collagen II backbone structure.


Affinity purified mouse monoclonal anti collagen II (COL2A1) antibody clone M2139 in PBS, sterile filtered (20 µm). The antibody recognizes the J1 epitope on triple helical collagen II1. The J1 epitope on mouse collagen consist of residues 551–564 with sequence MPGERRGAAGIAGPK1,4. The antibody M2139 has been used in applications including immunohistochemistry4, Western blot2, immunoprecipitation3, and in vivo4 and in vitro5 functional assays.

Target with alternative names: Collagen alpha-1(II) chain, COL2A1, type II collagen, CII; UniProt: P28481.

Immunogen: Mouse collagen II J1 epitope (triple helical position 551-564) with sequence MPGERRGAAGIAGPK1,4.

Species reactivity: Mouse, rat, human, bovine, chicken

Isotype: Mouse IgG2b, κ

Specificity: The antibody M2139 recognizes the conformational J1 epitope on the triple-helical structure of the native CII molecule.

Concentration: 1 mg/ml

Supplied in: PBS

Storage: Centrifuge briefly prior to opening vial. Store at +4°C short term (1-2 weeks). Aliquot and store at 20°C long term. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.

Recommended dilution: It is recommended the user determines the optimal dilution for their application. The typical starting working dilutions are: Functional assays (cell culture) 1:20–1:50, IHC 1:100.
