Pancreas collagen digestion during islet of Langerhans isolation

Abstract

The success of pancreas islet isolation largely depends on donor characteristics, including extracellular matrix composition of which collagen is the main element. We hypothesized that isolation yields are proportional to collagen digestion percentage, and aimed to determine a threshold that predicts isolation success.
