Invitrogen™ Vitronectin (VTN-N) Recombinant Human Protein, Truncated Non-distribution product as customer accommodation. Available on GSA/VA Contract for Federal Government customers only.

Vitronectin (VTN-N) is a recombinant human protein that provides a defined surface for feeder-free culture of human pluripotent stem cells (PSCs). When used with Essential 8™ Medium (A1517001), VTN-N has been proven to maintain pluripotency and normal growth characteristics in multiple PSC lines.

VTN-N has been shown to support PSC growth for >50 passages without any signs of karyotypic abnormalities and to maintain the ability of PSCs to differentiate into all three germ line lineages. The VTN-N variant of vitronectin supports human pluripotent stem cell attachment and survival better than wild-type vitronectin when used in conjunction with Essential 8™ Medium.

  • Optimized—designed in the laboratory of James Thomson for use with Essential 8™ Medium
  • Defined—for reduced variability in your PSC cultures
  • Cost effective—for economical and scalable PSC culture

Optimized and Defined Surface
Unlike standard basement membrane extracts (BMEs), vitronectin (VTN-N) was designed in the laboratory of James Thomson for use with Essential 8™ Medium and has been shown to support human pluripotent stem cell attachment and survival better than wild type vitronectin. Vitronectin (VTN-N) provides an optimal environment for feeder-free pluripotent stem cell culture.

Reduce Variability
Vitronectin (VTN-N) is a defined, recombinant human protein that reduces variability in your PSC cultures compared to human-plasma derived vitronectin and standard basement membrane extracts (BMEs).

Cost Effective
When used with Essential 8™ Medium, vitronectin (VTN-N) provides a cost effective, defined system for feeder free culture of human pluripotent stem cells (PSCs).

Commercialized in Partnership with Cellular Dynamics International.
