General description

FBS blocks reactive oxygen species generation, which otherwise is not eliminated in serum-free media (SFM) systems. It also protects cells from oxidative damage and apoptosis.
Fetal bovine serum is the main component present in almost all media used for the culture of animal cells. It provides serum additives to the cell culture medium, which is essential for supporting growth of a variety of cell types. It is rich in growth factors and protein but low in γ-globulin content.

Application

FBS sourced from Canada is used in a broad range of cell culture applications. FBS provides many non-defined growth promoting and survival enhancing factors to cells in culture. It was used as a supplement for different cell cultures.

Analysis Note

Certain lactone-containing secondary plant metabolites display potent biological effects, including anti-tumor activities. This is of particular interest as these compounds appear effective against hormone-dependent cancers, such as those of breast and prostate, of which the incidence is on the rise.

In the present study, polymer monofilaments were embedded in fibrin seeded with human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC) to guide HUVEC attachment and migration in order to form oriented vessel-like structures between adjacent monofilaments.

Previous studies have shown that transplanted enteric glia enhance axonal regeneration, reduce tissue damage, and promote functional recovery following spinal cord injury. However, the mechanisms by which enteric glia mediate these beneficial effects are unknown. Neurotrophic factors can promote neuronal
