Recombinant proteins target tissue engineering
Maptrix ECM recombinant proteins
Amsbio has launched a range of recombinant proteins for cell-culture and tissue-engineering applications that can substitute extracellular matrix proteins currently extracted from mouse sarcoma.
The Mussel Adhesive Protein-based matrix (Maptrix) ECM line of products are coating reagents with genetically incorporated bioactive peptides, which mimic the extracellular matrix (ECM) activity of collagen, fibronectin, laminin and vitronectin proteins.
These bioactive peptides mimic ECM proteins and provide for cell attachment, spreading and growth.
A Maptrix surface coating offers an animal-free, chemically defined attachment and growth surface that provides a highly controlled environment for cell culture and tissue-engineering applications.
The Maptrix ECM line of products provide an alternative to the conventional chemistry approach.
In addition to RGD motifs, Maptrix includes a variety of alternative motifs that mimic the extracellular matrix (ECM) activity of collagens, fibronectin, laminin, vitronectin and other matrix proteins.
The Maptrix ECM line of flexible products can be used in cell-culture applications alone, or in combination with other products.
All Maptrix products are soluble in a variety of buffers, including water of pH2 to 9.5.
Available for basic research or drug-discovery applications in serum-free or serum-reduced conditions, Maptrix products are provided as ready-to-use aqueous-coating formulations in 1, 2.5, 5 and 10mg sizes (vials).
The 3D Culture 96-Well BME Cell Invasion Assay addresses the need for more complete cancer invasion models.
AMSBIO’s latest suite of cell adhesion assays are specifically designed to evaluate optimal cell attachment to extracellular matrices.
AMSBIO’s 3D proliferation assays have been designed to make downstream applications of 3D cell culture easier.
Amsbio has introduced Genein - a transfection reagent designed to transfect stem cells and primary cells.
Amsbio, a provider of products and services for life-science research, has launched a webpage that features technical articles written by the company and its customers.
