It is the main component of connective tissue, and is the most abundant protein in mammals, making up about 25% to 35% of the whole-body protein content. Collagen, in the form of elongated fibrils, is mostly found in fibrous tissues such as tendon, ligament and skin, and is also abundant in cornea, cartilage, bone, blood vessels, the gut, and intervertebral disc.

Stem cell qualified basement membrane extract, often referred to as Matrigel, is a soluble form of basement membrane pufied from Engelbreth-Holm-Swarm (EHS) tumor. It is mainly comprised of laminin, collagen IV, entactin, and heparin sulfate proteoglycan, showing effective feeder-free surface for the attachment and maintenance of human embryonic stem cells in a pluripotent state, thereby enabling its use for growth promotion or for study of stem cell differentiation.

The coated basement membrane extract has been tested negative for 31 pathogens and viruses, including LDEV

Fibronectin is an extracellular matrix protein that is found abundantly in blood and connective tissues. These matrices are associated with the epithelial to mesenchymal transition of metasltatic cells, including tumor cells with stem cell-like properties. Fibronectin performs essential functions in collagen fibrillogenesis, as either a general cell adhesion molecule or a modulator in binding between cell surfaces and the extracellular matrix. Fibronectin matrix assembly is essential for normal vertebrate development and apparently contributes to the generation of tumor metastases by supporting the establishment and persistence of pre-metastatic niches. Fibronectin is secreted as a disulfide-like dimer of 230-270kDa, comprised of three types of repeating modules that mediate interactions with extracellular matrix components and cells via integrins and other fibronectin receptors. Thus, fibronectin can be used for coating culture coverslips to promote cell adhesion and proliferation.

Laminin I is an extracellular matrix protein which contains a number of functional domains that allow it to assemble into sheets. Highly purified mouse laminin I (from murine EHS sarcoma) increases cell adhesion, migration, proliferation, and differentiation.

Embryonic stem (ES) cells express receptors for laminin. Thus, the use of laminin as a growth matrix should be considered when peptide growth factors present in more complex hydrogels might adversely impact experimental results. Pure laminin I is sufficient to support excellent ES cell growth in the undifferentiated state in the absence of feeder cells.
