Collagen Substrate, FITC Conjugate

Catalogue number: X1098

Product Type Proteins & Peptides
Purified Protein
Units10 mg
Application Substrate

FITC-labeled bovine type I Collagen Substrate is an excellent substrate for examining collagenase activity. This labelled substrate is highly purified and telo-peptide free and is supplied lyophilized. 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).

Synonyms: Extracted from bovine skin


Immunogen: Bovine skin


Product Form: FITC

Formulation: Provided as a 1 mg/ml solution in 0.01M acetic acid.

Purity: >95%

Concentration: See vial for concentration

Used for the assay of mammalian collagenase activity. To heat denature collagen for preparing a substrate for gelatinase, transfer collagen solution to a brown glass bottle and heat to 80OC.

Functional Analysis: Activity Assay

Product should be stored at -20ºC. Aliquot to avoid freeze/thaw cycles

Product Stability: Stable in acidic buffer when stored at -20OC, however slowly degrades when stored in under neutral conditions.

Shipping Conditions: Ship at ambient temperature, freeze upon arrival
