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+ is an enhanced formulation of our CELLINK Bioink that contains several laminins and offers excellent printability and easy crosslinking, and is a great starting point for culturing many cell types in 3D. Also available with a GelXA base.
