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.
(Human Dermal Lymphatic Endothelial Cells (HDLEC) from the same donor are available on request.)
The cells are routinely analyzed 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, tumor genesis, and thrombosis.
NEW: Our HDBEC are now also available from HLA-typed donors.
- Cryopreserved: Cryogenic vial containing 500.000 viable cells.
- Proliferating: >500.000 viable cells shipped in growth medium (T25 flask).
- Cell pellet: 1 million cells dissolved in 200µl RNAlater© for subsequent RNA, DNA or protein analysis. Cell pellets cannot be revived.
