Fibronectin from bovine plasma

powder, BioReagent, suitable for cell culture

Synonym: CIG, Cold insoluble globulin

Description

Components

Cellular fibronectin is an adhesion glycoprotein of the ECM,k existing as a dimer of an A chain and the B chain containing the type III connecting segment (IIIcs) region. Cellular fibronectin is different from plasma fibronectin by the presence of additional polypeptide segments and in an altered morphology of transformed cells and hemagglutination. Different forms of fibronectin can be generated from tissue specific splicing of fibronectin mRNA transcribed from a single gene.

Application

This product is recommended for use as a cell culture substratum at 1-5 μg/cm2 or 0.5-50 μg/mL. The optimal concentration does depend on cell type as well as the application and research objectives. Bovine plasma fibronectin has been shown to stimulate the proliferation of rat osteoblasts in vitro, to induce odontoblast polarization and to regulae the differentiation of human dental pulp cells into odontoblasts.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Domains of fibronectin bind with collagen, fibrin, heparin, and specific cell membrane receptors. The most notable domain, Arg-Gly-Asp can be recognized by integrins and mediates cell adhesion. Fibronectin is also widely involved in interactions such as the attachment and migration of many cell types, cytoskeletal assembly, tyrosine phosphorylation, and metastasis.

Caution

As supplied, this product should be stored at -20°C and will remain active for at least 2 years.
