Are endothelial cells α-SMA-negative under all circumstances?

Scientific findings from different groups, as well as our own results indicate that the presence or absence of α-SMA is not a valid indicator for the composition of a given cell population. Research findings and our inhouse data suggest that endothelial cells are not α-SMA-negative under all circumstances. α-SMA negativity is not an intrinsic property of endothelial cells but can vary depending on extrinsic influences.

Lot-specific values for α-SMA in our Certificates of Analysis (CoAs) are therefore not considered meaningful.
