We have constructed DNA probes for the specific detection of mouse pro alpha 1(I), pro alpha 1(II), pro alpha 1(III) and alpha 1(IX) collagen transcripts. To avoid cross-hybridization the probes for fibrillar collagens cover mainly sequences in the 3' untranslated region of the gene. Sequencing and Northern analysis confirmed that the clones share minimal sequence similarity and detect only the specific mRNAs under normal hybridization and washing conditions. The clone for mouse alpha 1(IX) collagen covers coding sequences but is sufficiently divergent from other collagen transcripts to allow specific detection of the corresponding mRNA.
