- MW:849.474 Da
- Appearance:White to dark-brown powder
Type 1 Collagenase (isolated from Clostridium histolyticum) includes a balance of collagenase, caseinase, tryptic and clostripain activity. It is recommended for isolation of liver, lung, epithelial and adrenal primary cells in the laboratory.
One common research application of collagenase is the isolation of primary cells from tissue samples. Other research, however, has focused specifically on collagenase and its physiological roles. Excessive collagen turnover by collagenases has been studied as a cause of joint diseases. Collagenase has also been studied as an actor in the wound repair process.
