Human Aortic Smooth Muscle Cells (ACBRI 716) - Cell Systems

Regular price $735.00

Primary Human Aortic Smooth Muscle Cells (ACBRI 716) were initiated from normal human descending aortic tissue.


Cell Initiation

These cells were originated using Cell Systems Complete Serum-Free Medium (SF-4Z0-500), and subsequently grown and passaged in Cell Systems Complete Medium (4Z0-500). They are available at Passage 3 [< 12 cumulative population doublings] cryopreserved in Cell Systems Cell Freezing Medium™ (4Z0-705). This vial will initiate a Passage 4 cell culture in a 75cm2 flask. Each vial contains more than 1 x 10cells. 

In addition to cryopreserved vials, these cells also are available in 25cm2 and 75cm2 proliferating cell culture flasks (US domestic market only).

Companion Products

Each vial of cells is shipped with Bac-Off® (antibiotic) and CultureBoost™ (animal derived growth factors) or CultureBoost-R™ (human recombinant growth factors) at no additional cost.

These cells are qualified for use with:

    Characterization in Peer-Reviewed Literature

    From Li et al Journal of Virology (2000) 74:6564-6569. Figure 5. Introduction and expression of the EGFP gene by the F-defective SeV vector in a variety of cell types in vitro. (A to C) GFP expression by primary neuronal cells derived from rat cerebral cortex 5 days after infection with the vector at an MOI of 5 at lower (A) and higher (C) magnification and immunostained with anti-MAP2 antibody (B). (D to I) Normal human hepatocytes (D and G), normal human lung microvascular endothelial cells (E and H) [ACBRI 468] , and normal human smooth muscle cells (F and I) [ACBRI 716] were infected with the F-defective SeV vector at an MOI of 3. GFP expression was observed 3 days after infection (G to I).
