Laminins are proteins composed of three subunits — α-chain, β-chain and γ-chain. They are a major component of the basal lamina lining a cell membrane’s external surface. Its cross-like structure serves as the foundation for many tissues. Laminins play an important role in cell differentiation, migration, adhesion and the support of healthy tissue.
CELLINK LAMININK 411 is an enhanced formulation of our CELLINK Bioink that supports different tissues types, including tissues from the pancreas, vascular, immune, nervous and hematopoietic systems. This bioink is a suitable base material for culturing specific cell types, including pancreatic cells and neurons. You can use the bioink for developing pancreas models and studying brain and nerve tissues. Also available with a GelXA base.
