3D modeling of the blood-brain barrier in a microfluidic chip using Cell Systems human primary cells has shed light onto how different types of brain cells can independently affect the brain’s response to neuroinflammation. As a more physiologically relevant model, this BBB-chip can be a new promising tool for understanding the brain.
Elevating your insights into human cell biology requires a rethinking of each cell model. Presented in 2021, this more predictive and biologically relevant airway epithelial-endothelial model might allow scientists to better understand how our pulmonary system responses to diseases like COVID-19, COPD, asthma, cystic fibrosis and more. For the first time, scientists are co-culturing Calu-3 cells and Primary Human Lung Microvascular Endothelial Cells (from Cell Systems Cat# ACBRI 468) on flexible porous PTMC membranes to build a new airway epithelial-endothelial model that better reflects the lungs’ complexity. Many existing models involve culturing lung epithelial cells on stiff membranes, which is...
Transporting therapeutic drugs and agents across the blood-brain barrier (BBB) has always been a challenge for brain disease therapy. This study examines the permeability of 2D graphene nanosheets through the BBB using a popular in vitro BBB monolayer model constructed with Cell Systems primary human brain microvascular endothelial cells or hBMECs (Cat# ACBRI 376).
Research on the COVID-19 virus is uncovering the virus may, in some cases, be attacking endothelial cells and potentially causing systemic inflammation. This paper titled "Altered COVID-19 receptor ACE2 expression in a higher risk group for cerebrovascular disease and ischemic stroke" showcases research that utilized our human primary brain microvascular endothelial cells (ACBRI 376). Cell Systems offers a wide variety of human primary endothelial cells that are isolated without the use of antibodies. Our cells are more biologically relevant and offer outstanding consistency and quality for your research programs. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7256621/pdf/main.pdf #endothelialcells #covid19 #coronavirus #cellsystems
