Type I collagen, human, for tissue engineering research, cell culture, and biochemistryType I Collagen is the most abundant type of collagen in the human body and is a major structural protein prevalent in skin, bone, tendon, and other fibrous connective tissues. All collagens are characterized by a secondary protein structure consisting of three polypeptide chains wrapped around one another in a triple helical arrangement. The different types of collagen vary in the primary amino acid sequence of their polypeptide chains, with type I collagen being comprised of two identical α1(I) chains and one α2(I) chain that spontaneously form the triple helix in solution.CellAdhere™ Type I Collagen, Human, Lyophilized is prepared from extracellular matrix secreted by normal human fibroblasts and is xeno-free. Product is purified using a highly controlled manufacturing process. This process contains validated steps to ensure inactivation of possible viral contaminants. Product is sterility tested. Endotoxin level is 5.0 EU/mL or less, as assayed by Limulus amoebocyte lysate (LAL) assay.Note: This product is not intended for use as a 3D gel.
