Product Description

Poly-L-Lysine Hydrobromide

Application Notes

Poly-L-Lysine is typically used as a coating substrate for culture dishes, slides, etc. It can be used in conjugation to methotrexate for increased drug transport. For Microencapsulation of islets. It is also use in simple reproducible procedure for chromosomal preparations from a variety of tissues. For immobilation of living cells in biocompatible semipermeable microcapsules. In the preparation of polycationic beads. Conjugation to albumin and horseradish peroxidase to enhance cellular uptake.

Biochemical Physiological Actions Poly-L-Lysine hydrobromide is a synthetic amino acid that enhances cell adhesion to solid substrates. It has been proven useful as a vector for gene therapy. Poly-L-lysine is a nonspecific attachment factor for cells useful in promoting cell adhesion to solid substrates by enhancing electrostatic interaction between negatively charged ions of the cell membrane and the culture surface. When it is absorbed to the cell culture surface, poly-L-lysine functions to increase the number of positively charged sites available for cell binding. With cells that can digest poly-L-lysine, poly-D-lysine should be used as the attachment factor.
