Comparison of the collagen VI content within the islet-exocrine interface of the head, body, and tail regions of the human pancreas.

Abstract:

Efficient islet isolation depends on the use of collagenase to digest the extracellular matrix within the islet-exocrine interface, the molecular structure of which is poorly understood. Recently it has been reported that transplantable yields of islets can be isolated from the tail segment of the pancreas alone. This study aimed to quantify and compare the amount of collagenase-resistant collagen VI within the islet-exocrine interface of the head, body, and tail of the human pancreas. Human ...
