You can perform a Picro Sirius red and that (based upon the literature) will distinguish between Collagen I/III.  You can IHC stain for collagen I and collagen III in mouse, or possibly look at fibroblasts or collagen precursors.  We have not done this in lung but we have stained for a wide variety of IHC markers in wound healing models.  Good Luck.

Subject: [Histonet] staining of immature collagen in lung fibrosis models

Dear Histonetters,

I am looking for hearing from our experienced histonetters regarding the possibility of staining of immature collagen fibres in animal models of lung fibrosis. I didn't find any histochemical method in the literature to stain the immature collagen. I would like to know whether any specific method is available for staining or is there is possible to differentiate them from mature collagen fibres by means of existing methods(for eg. Scirius red or masson's trichrome)

Thanks in advance

Best regards
