iMatrix-511 SILK is xeno-free, recombinant laminin-511 E8 fragments, produced in recombinant silkworm cocoon.
iMatrix-511 SILK features make it an ideal matrix for pluripotent stem cell culture:
Laminin is localized to the basement membrane, and plays a key role in cell adhesion and proliferation. Laminin-511 (α5, β1 laminin) binds to integrin α6β1 to promote cell signaling. Laminin-511 provides an ideal matrix for the proliferation of a wide variety of cell types including stem and iPS cells.
iMatrix-511 SILK is functionally equivalent to iMatrix-511 (NP892-011, NP892-012). The only difference is the expression system used for bioproduction. The iMatrix-511 SILK product is produced in recombinant silkworm cocoon, and the iMatrix-511 legacy product is produced in CHO-S cells. Both are E8 fragments that have been purified using the same processes.
