Characterisation of collagen VI within the islet-exocrine interface of the human pancreas: implications for clinical islet isolation?

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: To optimize the methods used for human islet isolation for transplantation, it is important to improve our understanding of the structure of the islet-exocrine interface. In this study, the composition of collagen subtypes in the interface have been characterized and quantified in human pancreas. METHODS: Human adult pancreases were retrieved from older (mean age 55.7+/-3.0 yrs) and young donors (mean age 21.8+/-3.2 yrs). Tissue from the body of each pancreas was examined by quan...
