Collagen type III is diffusely present throughout the interstitial connective tissues, it is a marker for interstitial connective tissue of the extracellular matrix, it is a better marker than cellular fibronectin which is more closely associated with basement membrane and presence in extracellular matrix is minimal. In highly specialized vascular beds of spleen and glomeruli where basement membrane is prominent, little collagen type III is detected, whereas fibronectin is abundant. This antibody does not react with collagens type I, II, IV, V, VI, or VII.
