Cell Line Origin

Vein

Application

Primary Human Umbilical Vein Endothelial Cells (HUVEC) are isolated from the vein of the umbilical cord. They are commonly used for physiological and pharmacological investigations, such as macromolecule transport, blood coagulation, angiogenesis, and fibrinolysis. HUVEC are isolated from single donors in standard Endothelial Cell Growth Medium and provided in a cryopreserved format. The cells have been pre-screened for VEGF (vascular endothelial growth factor) response. VEGF is an important signaling protein involved in both vasculogenesis and angiogenesis. In vitro, VEGF has been shown to stimulate endothelial cell mitogenesis, cell migration, sprouting, and microvascular permeability.

Quality

Rigid quality control tests are performed for each lot of Endothelial Cells from large vessels. They are tested for cell morphology, adherence rate, and cell viability. Flow cytometric analyses for cell-type specific markers, e.g. von Willebrand Factor (vWF) and CD31, as well as Dil-Ac-LDL uptake assays are also carried out for each lot. Growth performance is tested through multiple passages up to 15 population doublings (PD) under culture conditions without antibiotics and antimycotics. In addition, all cells have been tested for the absence of HIV-1, HIV-2, HBV, HCV, HTLV-1, HTLV-2 and microbial contaminants (fungi, bacteria, and mycoplasma).

Warning

Although tested negative for HIV-1, HIV-2, HBV, HCV, HTLV-1 and HTLV-2, the cells – like all products of human origin – should be handled as potentially infectious. No test procedure can completely guarantee the absence of infectious agents.
