General description

Lot specific orders are not able to be placed through the web. Contact your local sales rep for more details.

The pulmonary vasculature is of great physiological/pathological significance. It is now recognized to be a tissue composed of metabolically active, functionally responsive cells, that interact with circulating substrates and regulate the composition of systemic arterial blood, affect target organ functions, and contribute to thrombosis, hemostasis and immune reactions, as well as tumor metastasis. Human Lung Microvascular Endothelial Cells (HLMVEC) provide a useful tool for studying various aspects of pathology and biology of the pulmonary microvasculature in vitro.

HLMVEC have been used to elucidate the therapeutic effects of Angiotensin I-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, and the results revealed that they provide an additional benefit to patients by activating bradykinin B1 receptor leading to prolonged nitric oxide (NO) production in endothelial cells and inhibition of PKCε (Ignjatovic, 2004; Stanisavljevic, 2006).
