Evaluation of gelatin hydrogel as a potential carrier for cell transportation
We prepared uncleaved gelatin composed mainly of collagen α-, β-, and γ-chains. Gelation and melting of uncleaved gelatin occurred rapidly with moderate decrease and increase in temperature (23°C–37°C). The viability of cells encapsulated in the gelatin gel was greater than 96% after 7 d at 23°C.
