PhotoCol™-LAP bioink kit consists of purified methacrylated Type I bovine collagen as the core component with other support reagents. The methacrylated Type I collagen is produced from telo-peptide intact bovine collagen where the collagen has been modified by reacting the free amines, primarily the ε-amines groups of the lysine residues as well as the a-amines groups on the N-termini. Over 20% of the total lysine residues of the collagen molecule have been methacrylated. A bottle of 20 mM acetic acid solution is provided to solubilize the lyophilized methacrylated collagen at concentrations ranging from 3 to 8 mg/ml. The neutralization solution consists of an alkaline 10X phosphate buffered saline (PBS) solution which provides physiological salts and pH in the final mixture. The photoinitiator consists of LAP to be formulated in 1X cell culture media or PBS, which allows blue light photocrosslinking of the printed structure at 405 nm. PhotoCol™-LAP provides native-like 3D collagen gels, and the final gel stiffness can be customized by changing collagen concentrations and crosslinking.

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related death worldwide yet in vitro disease models have been limited to traditional 2D culture utilizing cancer cell lines. In contrast, recently developed 3D models (organoids) have been adopted by researchers to improve
Current protocols in chemical biology, 11(2), e65-e65 (2019-06-06)
With the increase in knowledge on the importance of the tumor microenvironment, cell culture models of cancers can be adapted to better recapitulate physiologically relevant situations. Three main microenvironmental factors influence tumor phenotype: the biochemical components that stimulate cells, the
Type-I collagen is an attractive scaffold material for tissue engineering due to its ability to self-assemble into a fibrillar hydrogel, its innate support of tissue cells through bioactive adhesion sites, and its biodegradability. However, a lack of control of material
