General description

PureCol collagen is approximately 97% Type I with the remainder being comprised of Type III collagen. It is soluble atelo-collagen. It contains high monomer content as measured by gel permeation chromatography.

It is ideal for coating of surfaces and providing preparations of thin layers for culturing cells. PureCol, lyophilized form is not recommended for the formation of a solid gel. PureCol collagen is provided in user-friendly packaging for use and storage. This product is supplied as a sterile lyophilized powder.

Application

PureCol has been used:
  • in collagen gel preparation for the 3D sprouting assay with human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC) spheroids 
  • to coat Costar® Transwell® Inserts plates before cell migration assays with bladder smooth muscle cells (BMSC)
  • to coat culture plates for collagen degradation assay with breast cancer cell lines

Preparation Note

This product is supplied as a lyophilized powder with 15 mg of bovine collagen. When reconstituted with 5 ml of sterile 0.01 N HCl, a concentration of approximately 3 mg/ml is achieved.

Heparan sulfate proteoglycans, HSPGs, modulate major transformations of cancer cells, leading to tumor growth, invasion and metastasis. HSPGs also regulate neo-angiogenesis which prompts cancer progression and metastatic spread. A different aspect of heparin and analogs is their prominent role in...
