Human Tracheal Epithelial Cells (HTEpC)
Primary Human Tracheal Epithelial Cells isolated from surface epithelium of human trachea.
Primary Human Tracheal Epithelial Cells (HTEpC) are isolated from the surface epithelium of human trachea and stain positive for cytokeratin.
The respiratory epithelia are responsible for the lubrication of the lungs, the maintenance of humidity, and the cleaning of the respiratory tract. They are an important target for drugs, toxins, and carcinogens. In addition, they are involved in many diseases such as cystic fibrosis. Consequently, HTEpC are useful for investigating the function and pathology of the respiratory system.
NEW: Our HTEpC 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.
|Recommended plating density||10,000 – 15,000 cells per cm2|
|Passage After Thawing||P2|
|Tested Markers||cytokeratin positive|
|Guaranteed Population Doubling||> 15|
