Enhance cell culture and accelerate discovery with Corning cell growth and differentiation products
Several major classes of molecules regulate cellular development and function, including growth and differentiation factors, cell adhesion molecules, and the components of the extracellular matrix (ECM). The ECM is composed of a number of different macromolecules that influence such cell behaviors as adherence, spreading, differentiation, and migration. It also influences the pattern of gene expression of the cells in which it is in contact. To create physiologically relevant in vitro models that support normal cell growth and function, the components of the in vivo environment must be incorporated. Using ECM proteins as a coating for tissue culture surfaces permits the development of cell type-specific model systems that closely mimic in vivo conditions.
To help you take full advantage of the vital role ECMs play in the regulation of fundamental cellular processes, Corning offers a wide range of extracellular matrix proteins and attachment factors, including Corning® Matrigel® matrix, Corning BioCoatTM cellware, and other Corning ECM surfaces. Discover how these can be incorporated into your cell culture systems to support advanced cell growth and cell differentiation applications.
