PS coated with porcine gelatin. Corning® BioCoat™ gelatin provides an attachment and growth promoting substrate for the culture of a variety of cell types. Gelatin is commonly used in the culture of normal and transfected cell types, including vascular endothelial, muscle, embryonic stem (ES) and F9 teratocarcinoma cells.
- Gelatin substrate enhances the attachment of a variety of normal and transfected cell types
- Pre-treatment with gelatin eliminates time consuming preparation, saving time and money
- Lot-to-lot consistency ensures reproducible results
Gelatin is a heterogeneous mixture of water soluble proteins derived through the hydrolysis of collagen. Applications include promotion of cell attachment and spreading of vascular endothelial cells (for instance, BME, BAEC, ES cells), C2C12 myoblasts and MM14 myoblasts; culture of normal and transfected F9 teratocarcinoma cells for gene expression studies; and culture of HUVEC for E Selectin expression and VEGF induction.
