General description

Fibronectin is a ubiquitous protein of the extracellular matrix. It is a mosaic protein, that is made up of three types of repeating modular consensus amino acid sequences. Fibronectins belongs to a class of high-molecular-weight glycoproteins. Cellular fibronectin is expressed by fibroblasts and plasma fibronectin is usually liberated by hepatocytes.

Application

Fibronectin (FN) bovine plasma has been used in:
  • fibronectin and adsorption analysis (ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay))
  • transwell migration
  • fibronectin assay

Biochem/physiol Actions

Fibronectins participate in cell adhesion, cytoskeletal organization, oncogenic transformation, cell migration, phagocytosis, hemostasis, and embryonic differentiation.

Analysis Note

Protein homogeneity is evaluated by immunoelectrophoresis.

Other Notes

Product F1141, Fibronectin from bovine plasma is a solution in 0.05 M TBS pH 7.5.

Certificate of Analysis

Certificate of Origin

  1. Which document(s) contains shelf-life or expiration date information for a given product?

    If available for a given product, the recommended re-test date or the expiration date can be found on the Certificate of Analysis.

  2. How do I get lot-specific information or a Certificate of Analysis?

    The lot specific COA document can be found by entering the lot number above under the "Documents" section.

  3. How do I choose which fibronectin product to use to coat culture surfaces for cell growth?

    The species source for the fibronectin used when coating culture surfaces is not important.  It is the presence of the RGD binding site that is present in all fibronectins that promotes binding.

  4. How long can I store the fibronectin solution?

    The product is good for at least a year at 2-8 °C if kept sterile.

  5. How long can I store fibronectin coated plates, etc?

    Fibronectin coated cultureware can be stored for 2-4 weeks at 2-8 °C in a closed sterile container, or in sterile sealable bags.

  6. What is the procedure for coating culture surfaces with fibronectin?

    To coat culture surfaces: 1. Dilute fibronectin in sterile balanced salt solution and coat the culture surface (1-5 μg/cm2) with a minimal volume.  2. Allow to air dry for at least 45 minutes at room temperature.  Excess fibronectin may be removed by aspiration, but this is not necessary.

  7. How do I find price and availability?
