[Histonet] RE: measuring collagen

From:"Boyce, Amanda \(NIH/NIAMS\)"

Our lab uses a hydroxyproline assay.  I've never used it, so I can't troubleshoot it for you, but here's the protocol:

Acid hydrolysis
	*	 Papain digest and 12N HCL 1:1
	*	110 overnight in sealed glass ampules
	*	dry sample 24-48 h in vacuum-pump with NaOH
	*	resuspend in 1 ml assay buffer, vortex, overnight at 4, vortex again
	*	store at -20 or assay

Hydroxyproline assay
Reagents:
	*	stock buffer: 50 g citric acid monohydrate, 12 ml glacial acetic acid , 120 g sodium acetate trihydrate, 34 g sodium hydroxide ad 1 liter, pH 6.0, store at 4
	*	assay buffer: 1:10 dilution of stock buffer
	*	chloramin-T-reagent: 0.3525g Chloramine T dissolved in 5.175 ml water, add 6.5 ml m-propanol and 13.325 ml stock buffer, make fresh
	*	Dimethylaminobenzaldehyde reagent: 3.75 g dimethylaminobenzaldehyde in 15 ml n-propanol, add 6.5 ml perchloric acid, make fresh
	*	Standard: 1 mg/ml hydroyxproline, store -20
Method:
	1.	standard dilutions: 0, 0 , 0.2, 0.4, 0.6, 0.8, 1, 2, 4, 6, 8 ,10 =B5g/ml
	2.	sample dilutions: 1:5, 1:10, 1:20, 1:40, 1:80,1: 100
	3.	200 Ál sample/standard in eppendorf
	4.	add 100 Ál Chloramine T, pipett mix 20 min room temp
	5.	add 100 Ál dimethylaminobenzaldehyde, pipet mix, 15 min 60 water bath
	6.	300 Ál in 96 well plate and read immediately 540 nm
