Bovine Collagen Solution, Type II
Bovine Collagen Type II is one of a family of proteins found particularly in the flesh and connective tissues of mammals (approximately one-third of the body’s total protein). Over two dozen types of collagen have been described; Type II is found predominantly in hyaline cartilage (50% of the protein in hyaline is collagen type II) and is also found in the vitreous humor of the eye.
Type II collagen may be used to culture a variety of cell types. Type II collagen is typically used as a coating material for cell culture studies, for the formation of 3D collagen gels, or as an antigen for antibody production. It can be used as an additive to a variety of bioinks for increased functionality.
