Primary Human Renal Cortical Epithelial Cells (HRCEpC) are isolated from the cortex of the human kidney and stain positive for cytokeratin. The renal cortex is the outer portion of the kidney between the renal capsule and the renal medulla. It contains the renal corpuscles, the proximal and distal convoluted tubules, and the cortical collecting ducts.
Important physiological processes like osmoregulation and excretion can be studied with HRCEpC in vitro.
NEW: Our HRCEpC are now also available from HLA-typed donors.
