The extracellular basement membranes separating various epithelial and endothelial cells are composed primarily of type IV collagen. It plays a significant role in the dermal-epidermal junction and is primarily present in the lamina densa. It is a heterotrimeric molecule with two chains that resemble Alpha 1 and one chain that resembles Alpha 2.

On surfaces used for tissue culture, type IV collagen is typically applied as a thin coating. The Directions for Use contain detailed instructions. In vitro, this product is typically used as a substrate scaffold to improve cell attachment, adherence, and proliferation.

Many different cell types, including epithelial, endothelial, muscle, and nerve cells, can be cultured using type IV collagen. The use of this product as a substrate for collagenase assays and positive controls is also acceptable.
