Primary Human Coronary Artery Smooth Muscle Cells (HCASMC) are isolated from human coronary arteries and stain positive for smooth muscle α-actin. Coronary arteries supply the heart with blood and obstruction in atherosclerosis causes myocardial infarction.

HCASMC are qualified to study the function of smooth muscle cells in the development of atherosclerotic plaques or in other diseases like hypertension. They are also useful for stent-graft compatibility testing.

NEW: Our HCASMC are now also available from HLA-typed and Diabetes Type I and Type II donors.
