    Characteristics of Collagen Classified Based on Its Molecular Species and Extraction Methods

    ◆Collagen type I
    Type I collagen is the major fibrous protein in the extracellular matrix. It can be found in most organs, but is particularly abundant in bone, tendon, and dermis.

    Acid Soluble Collagen(ASC)
    ・Due to its high gel strength, this collagen preparation is ideal for both “On-Gel” and “In-Gel (Gel-Embedded)” cultures. 
    ・Filtered through a 0.45 μm pore size membrane.

    Pepsin Solubilized Collagen (PSC)
    ・ Atelocollagen prepared by enzymatically removing telopeptides. 
    ・ This form of collagen has high cellular adhesiveness, making it perfect for coating cell culture vessel surfaces.
    ・ Filtered through a 0.45 μm pore size membrane.

    ◆Collagen type Ⅲ
    This is a fibrillar collagen abundant in tissues with high elasticity, such as juvenile skin tissues and the arterial tunica media where smooth muscle cells populate. Type III collagen is also expressed during embryogenesis and wound healing.

    ・Atelocollagen prepared by enzymatically removing telopeptides. 
    ・Filtered through a 0.45 μm pore size membrane.

    ◆Collagen type Ⅳ
    Type IV collagen is one of the major components of basement membranes. It polymerizes to form a mesh-like network in the basal lamina.

    ・Acid-extracted native collagen. 
    ・This form of collagen has high cellular adhesiveness . It is suitable for collagen-gel cultures and collagen-coating of culture vessel surfaces.

  • Fibronectin Solution, from Human Plasma

    Fibronectin is an extracellular matrix glycoprotein. It exists as a dimer consisting of two nearly identical ~250-kDa subunits. Fibronectin plays a major role in the adhesion of various types of cells, including fibroblasts, hepatocytes, and neurons. In addition to cell adhesion, this glycoprotein mediates many other cellular processes (such as cell migration and phagocytosis) through the interaction with a family of specialized cell-surface receptors called integrins. It is also well established that fibronectin has profound effects on wound healing.

  • For coating cell culture vessel surfaces-Laminin Solution

    Laminins are a major basement membrane component of most animal tissues. . In cell culture, laminins have been used for coating the surfaces of cell culture vessels. It is widely known that laminin-coated surfaces enhanced attachment to certain types of cells (primarily epithelial cells, neurons, hepatocytes, and muscle cells).

  • Human type I collagen-like recombinant peptide - FUJIFILM Corp. products - cellnest™

    Fujifilm developed a non-animal based recombinant peptide (RCP), taking advantage of the know-how from our photographic film past. RCP is a biomaterial, applicable in various forms such as sponges, granules and film for a broad range of medical and pharmaceutical applications.00538_img09.jpg

  • Type I Collagen, from Fish Scales - Taki Chemical Co., Ltd. products -Cellcampus


    This product, called Cellcampus®, is a preparation of type I collagen derived from the scales of farm-raised tilapia, a tropical fish. Cellcampus® is manufactured by Taki Chemical Co., Ltd. in Japan. 00539_img02.jpg

    There are no known viruses transmitted from tilapia to humans. Furthermore, tropical fish collagens show higher denaturation temperatures, as compared with collagens derived from non-tropical fish. Thus, Cellcampus® is perfect for tissue and cell culture applications in the field of regenerative medicine. 00539_img03.jpg
    It is well documented that tilapia scale collagen exhibits an excellent fibril-forming ability. Moreover, this collagen can enhance cell proliferation. Therefore, Cellcampus® is also ideal for general cell culture protocols.
