Human Umbilical Artery Endothelial Cells (HUAEC)
Primary Human Umbilical Endothelial Cells isolated from the arteries of the umbilical cord.
Primary Human Umbilical Artery Endothelial Cells (HUAEC) are isolated from the arteries of the umbilical cord and are often used for in vitro studies on atherosclerosis but also for endothelial cell-dependent lymphocyte activation and chemoattractant activity experiments.
(Human Umbilical Vein Endothelial Cells (HUVEC) from the same donor are available on request).
NEW: Our HUAEC are now also available from HLA-typed donors.
- Cryopreserved: Cryogenic vial containing 500.000 viable cells.

Which medium does PromoCell recommend for endothelial cell transfection ?
There are several factors that can influence successful transfections, e.g. viability and density of the cells, choice of the transfection reagent, quality and type of the transfected molecules (plasmids, siRNA, oligonucleotides), as well as the culture medium and supplements used.
When using PromoCell Endothelial Cell Growth Media for cell transfection, please follow the instructions below:
Heparin, which is included in our Endothelial Cell Growth Medium (C-22010/C-22110), Medium 2 (C-22011/C-22111) and Medium MV (C-22020/C-22120) may reduce the transfection efficiency. We therefore recommend to use our heparin-free Endothelial Cell Growth Medium MV2 (C-22022/C-22121). Alternatively, you may use Endothelial Cell Growth Medium Kit (C-22110), Medium 2 Kit (C-22111), or Medium MV Kit (C-22120) without adding the heparin supplement to the Basal Medium.
Please note: Before and after transfection, the cells should be cultured in complete Growth Medium including heparin to ensure optimal growth.

Which medium do PromoCell recommend to use on HUVEC – Endothelial Cell Growth Medium or Endothelial Cell Growth Medium 2?
The standard medium for isolation and propagation of our HUVEC, HUAEC, HPAEC, and HSaVEC is Endothelial Cell Growth Medium (C-22010). It contains ECGS, an extract from bovine hypothalamus which has mitogenic effects on endothelial cell proliferation. Scientists who prefer a more defined Growth Medium can use Endothelial Cell Growth Medium 2 (C-22011). In this medium, ECGS is replaced by VEGF, IGF, and additional bFGF and EGF to stimulate endothelial cell growth.

At what passage do PromoCell supply the cell pellets?
The majority of PromoCell cell pellets are prepared 1 passage after thawing the cryopreserved cells. Examples: HUVEC and HUAEC correspond to P1 after thawing; therefore the pellets are frozen in P2. SMC or keratinocytes or epithelial cells correspond to P2 after thawing; therefore the pellets are frozen in P3. In contrast, our blood cells are cryopreserved directly after cell isolation. These pellets are prepared after thawing the cryovials with no further cultivation step.
