Primary Human Dermal Blood Endothelial Cells (HDBEC) are a subpopulation of the Human Dermal Endothelial Cells. They are isolated from the dermis of juvenile foreskin and adult skin (different locations) from a single donor.
The cells are routinely analysed by flow cytometric analysis and immunofluorescent staining: they are >95% CD31 positive and stain positive for von Willebrand factor. In addition, they are >90% negative for podoplanin and stain negative for smooth muscle specific alpha-actin.
Blood Endothelial Cells have a key function in physiological processes like vessel tonus, capillary permeability, blood coagulation, fibrolysis, and angiogenesis. They are also useful for disease studies of atherosclerosis, tumour genesis, and thrombosis.
Informations de commande: Human Dermal Blood Endothelial Cells can be ordered as cryopreserved or proliferating cells. Cell pellets stored in RNAlater® are also available.
