Mouse Collagen-I is a natural protein purified from Mouse tail tendon. Collagen-I is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Collagen, a major component of the extracellular matrix, is a fibrous protein that provides tensile strength to tissues giving them structural integrity. Collagens contribute to mechanical properties, organization, and shape of tissues. Collagen is the most widely used extracellular matrix (ECM) protein for cell culture, facilitating cell attachment, growth, differentiation, migration, and tissue morphogenesis.
Type I Collagen is by far the most abundant protein in all vertebrates. It assembles into fibers that form the structural and mechanical scaffold (matrix) of bone, skin, tendons, cornea, blood vessel walls and other connective tissues. Type I collagen consists of two α1(I) chains and one α2(I) chain.
Mouse tail tendon.
Filtered white lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder. Collagen-I was lyophilized without additives.
Purity > 90.0%.
We recommend to add 0.5 M acetic acid, pH 2.5 at 4°C to prepare a working stock solution not less than 100 µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
At ambient temperature. Upon receipt, store the product at the temperature recommended below.
Lyophilized Collagen-I although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18C. Upon reconstitution Collagen-I should be stored at 4C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18C.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
This product is intended to Laboratory Research Use Only. This product may not be used a drug, agricultural product, food additives.
