Gelatin: An Argumentative Analysis

Satisfactory Essays
The low antigenicity, biodegradable nature, and cell-binding properties of collagen make it valuable for tissue engineering applications. In parallel, Gelatin is biocompatible, non-immunogenic and bioresorbable. Although, gelatin lacks the structural characteristics of collagen but it has higher solubility and lower cost relative to collagen. Gelatin/CaPs nanocomposites with enhanced mechanical properties and better cell attachment have also been reported. The gelatin/HAP nanostructured scaffolds exhibited mechanical strength comparable to the spongy bone with an excellent capacity of cell attachment, migration and penetration into the pores of the nanocomposite. Thus, it can be concluded that both Collagen and Gelatin have been emerging as
