Worthington Biochemical Collagenase

Source: Clostridium histolyticum

I.U.B.: 3.4.24.3

Collagenase Raw Material Certification 

 

Crude collagenase preparations contain several isoforms of two different collagenases, a sulfhydryl protease, clostripain, a trypsin-like enzyme, and an aminopeptidase. This combination of collagenolytic and proteolytic activities is effective at breaking down intercellular matrices, the essential part of tissue dissociation. One component of the complex is a hydrolytic enzyme which degrades the helical regions in native collagen preferentially at the Y-Gly bond in the sequence Pro-Y-Gly-Pro, where Y is most frequently a neutral amino acid. This cleavage yields products susceptible to further peptidase digestion. Crude collagenase is inhibited by metal chelating agents such as cysteine, EDTA or o-phenanthroline but not DFP. It is also inhibited by α2-macroglobulin, a large plasma glycoprotein. Ca2+ is required for enzyme activity. Particular enzymatic profiles of each collagenase have been correlated with the tissues from which the cells for study were obtained (or with the uses to which the cells are put) and as a result of the correlations several types of crude collagenases have been established by Worthington: Types 1, 2, 3, and 4.

Type 1 crude collagenase has the original balance of collagenase, caseinase, clostripain and tryptic activities.
Type 2 contains higher relative levels of protease activity, particularly clostripain.
Type 3 contains lowest levels of secondary proteases.
Type 4 is designed to be especially low in tryptic activity to limit damage to membrane proteins and receptors.
• Purified collagenase, Code: CLSPA, contains minimal secondary proteolytic activities along with high collagenase activity.

NEW! Animal Origin Free Types AFA, AFB and AFC, STZ1, and STZ2 collagenases are derived from cultures grown in medium completely devoid of animal based components and designed for bioprocessing applications where introduction of potential animal derived pathogens must be prevented. Levels of secondary proteases are similar to Types 1 and 2 collagenase.

• CLSAFA is the original AFA grade designed to have collagenase and secondary proteases similar to Types 1 and 2 collagenase.
• CLSAFB contains higher collagenase and caseinase activities than CLSAFA.
• CLSAFC has especially low tryptic activity similar to Type 4 collagenase.
• STZ1 & STZ2, 0.22μ filtered STEMxyme™ AOF Collagenase/Neutral Protease (Dispase®) blends for primary and stem cell isolation. 

Worthington also offers 0.22µm filtered preparations of each type in pre-packaged form for direct reconstitution and use in cell isolation and culture procedures. Correlations between enzyme type and effectiveness with different tissues have been good, but not perfect, due in part to the variable parameters of use. Nevertheless most researchers consider the tissue-typing of crude collagenase lots to be a valuable service. A detailed description of the Worthington collagenase and contaminant assays can be found in the Worthington Enzyme Manual. In addition, tissue specific references and detailed isolation conditions can be found in the Worthington Tissue Dissociation Guide.

The collagenase assay is a modification of Mandl wherein collagenase is incubated for five hours with native collagen and the extent of collagen breakdown is determined using the Moore and Stein, JBC, 176, 367, (1948) colorimetric ninhydrin method. Amino acids released are expressed as micromoles leucine per milligram collagenase.

Uses: Crude collagenases are widely used in enzymatic primary cell isolation and tissue dissociation procedures. Most researchers employ either crude collagenase preparations such as Types 1, 2, 3, and 4 or chromatographically purified collagenase (Code: CLSPA); the latter usually combined with secondary enzymes such as elastase, hyaluronidase, etc. For best results, the precise mixture of proteolytic activities must be tailored to the tissue to be dissociated. Correlations between type and effectiveness with different tissues have been good, but not perfect, and may be dependent partly on parameters of use and objectives as well as lot-to-lot variations. For more information see the Collagenase Sampling Program information. Worthington also publishes a Tissue Dissociation Guide which provides additional information regarding the enzymes used for these applications and specific references for numerous cell and tissue types.

Unit Definition: One Unit releases one micromole of L-leucine equivalents from collagen in 5 hours at 37°C, pH 7.5
