Product Type Purified Protein
Units10 mg
HostBovine
Application Substrate
Product Form
FITC

Background
FITC-labeled bovine type II collagen substrate is an excellent substrate for examining collagenase activity. This labelled substrate is highly purified and telo-peptide free and is supplied as solution in acetic acid. To minimize background levels in collagenase assays, FITC-labeled collagen has been enzymatically pre-treated and further purified by ion-exchange chromatography. FITC-labeled collagen can also be used as a substrate for cell culture. Collagen degradation products in the culture supernatants can be directly determined by measured the flourescence at 520 nm (Emission)/490 nm (Excitation).
