Advanced Biomatrix Launches a New Three Dimensional Matrix Product: Peptite-2000™
Product News Jan 20, 2010
Advanced BioMatrix has announced that it has launched a new cell adhesion product, PEPTITE-2000™.
PEPTITE-2000™ is a synthetic peptide containing the RGD cell attachment sequence found in fibronectin, vitronectin and many other extracellular matrix and serum proteins.
This RGD peptide has been specifically engineered to spontaneously adhere to a variety of surfaces such as polystyrene (either tissue culture treated or non-treated), hollow fibers made of cellulose, glass, polycarbonate membranes and many other materials. This binding is mediated via a hydroscopic C-terminal sequence. The RGD motif is present at the N-terminal end of the peptide, allowing for optimal cell attachment via integrin receptors.
PEPTITE-2000™ can be substituted as the primary cell attachment component in a chemically defined animal component-free and serum-free culture systems. PEPTITE-2000™ is supplied in sterile 5 mg quantities.
“Our products are recognized as the standard for purity, functionality, and consistency for researchers who depend on quality products and reagents for their important research work. Using PEPTITE-2000™ provides an excellent, cost effective method for enhancing cell attachment in our customer’s research.
PEPTITE-2000™ is especially effective in serum-free conditions or culture systems with hard to adhere cell lines,” states David Bagley, of Advanced BioMatrix.
