Description

Bovine Collagen-IV is a natural protein purified from bovine placenta. Collagen-IV 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 IV collagen is a major component of the basement membrane, which is the specialized sheet-like ECM of multicellular tissues that exists around certain cell types (e.g., skeletal muscle cells, smooth muscle cells, heart muscle cells, and adipocytes).

Source

Bovine placenta.

Formulation

Filtered white lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder. Collagen-IV was lyophilized without additives.

Purity

Purity > 90.0%.

Reconstitution

We recommend to reconstitute the lyophilized Collagen-IV in 20 mM acetic acid not less than 1 mg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.

Shipping

Storage/Expiration

Lyophilized Collagen-IV although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18C. Upon reconstitution Collagen-IV 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).
