Native Collagen Acidic Solution KKN-IAC-50 (5 mg/mL, 50 mL)
Native Collagen Acidic Solution KKN-IAC-50 is a highly purified form of Type 1 collagen suitable for cell culture applications. IAC-50 is supplied as a sterile, 0.5% acidic solution (pH3.0); however, when neutralized the collagen will form insoluble fibrils.
Collagen is a common protein that makes up a significant part of the living body, whether human or animal. As a structural protein, collagen is essential to creating the body's physical structure, and as an extracellular matrix it acts as a supporting framework over which our cells are arranged. The collagen molecule is composed of three intertwined peptide chains. It is a rigid protein 300 nm in length, 1.5 nm in diameter, and approximately 300 kilodaltons (kDa) in molecular weight. The entire molecule consists of about 3,000 amino acids.
