Murine collagen type I and III purified from tail tendons of the mouse
Mouse tail tendons
Murine collagens: type I –
45%, type III – 45%, type IV – 10%, type V below 1%. Non-collagen
proteins below 0.5%
Partial pepsin digestion
in acidic conditions and differential salt precipitation
Standard for immunological assays. Coating material for cell
culture studies. May not be suitable for 3-D gel formation
