PhotoCol® kits consists of purified methacrylated Type I bovine collagen as the core component with other support reagents in the kit. This PhotoCol® product only contains the methacrylated collagen. For the entire photocrosslinking kit, please visit any of the PhotoCol® Kit pages.
The methacrylated Type I collagen is produced from telo-peptide intact bovine collagen where the collagen has been modified by reacting the free amines, primarily the e-amines groups of the lysine residues as well as the a-amines groups on the N-termini. > 20% of the total lysine residues of the collagen molecule have been methacrylated. The collagen is extracted from bovine hide and contains a high monomer content.
