Type︱collagen,a fibrous protein abundant in connective tissues including tendon,ligament,dermis and blood vessel,is the major component and the primary determinant of tensile strength of the extracelluar matrix(ECM).It is widely used as a thin layer on tussue-culture surfaces to enhance the attachment and proliferation of a variety of cells including endothelial cells,fibroblasts,hepatocytes,epithelial cells and etc.In addition,collagen︱can self-assemble into 3-D superamolecular gel in vitro,making it an ideal biological scaffold to promote more in vivo-like cellular morphology and function. The Celltechgen™ Collagen I-3D Gelling Kit includes collagen ︱purified from rat tail tendon by a modification of the method of Bell etal1 and supplied as a sterile liquid in 1/1000 acetic acid.It also includes a 10X Gelling buffer,which can be used to adjust the PH and ionic strength of the collagen ︱solution to allow for the foamation of a homogenous gel.This kit is used form collagen ︱-3D gelling in vitro.It is for research use only.Not for use in animals,humans,or diagnostic procedures.
