Primary Human Glomerular Microvascular Endothelial Cells Day 2 ACBRI 128

Increase Biological Relevance with Human Primary Cells

Our antibody-free primary cells can offer a more biologically relevant cell culture tool for scientists to enhance their research insights. These primary cells were originated using Cell Systems Complete Serum-Free Medium (SF-4Z0-500) and subsequently grown and passaged in Cell Systems Complete Classic Medium (4Z0-500). The cells are cryopreserved in Cell Systems Cell Freezing Medium (4Z0-705).

  • Isolated from normal, healthy donor tissue
  • Available at Passage 3 (<12 cumulative population doublings)
  • Each vial contains approximately 1 x 106 cells
  • Each vial will initiate a Passage 4 cell culture in a 75 cm2 flask
  • Available in reserved lots to enhance consistency in your research program

Each vial of cells is shipped to customers with 1mL of Bac-Off® and .25mL of CultureBoost™.

ACBRI 128 at Passage 6, demonstrating uptake of fluorescently labeled DiI-Ac-LDL as functional test for endothelial cell identity.




Immunofluorescence staining showing expression of endothelial (EnC)-specific markers by human glomerular EnC (GEnC) cultured on coverslips. Magnification, x200.



Chart showing the effect of TNF-α on e-selectin expression by GEnC in a cell-based fluorescence immunoassay. GEnC were incubated with TNF-α at various concentrations or control medium for 6 h before fixing and labeling for e-selectin. E-selectin expression is proportional to fluorescence emission. Bars show mean ± SEM; n = 12; P < 0.001 by ANOVA.



Chart showing the results of separate experiments examining the effect of cAMP medium (containing 2 μM RO-20-1724 and 30 μM pCPT-cAMP) or thrombin (1 U/ml) on transendothelial electrical resistance (TEER) of GEnC monolayers after 1 h. Bars show mean ± SEM; n = 5, P = 0.006 for effect of cAMP; n = 8, P < 0.0005 for effect of thrombin, P values by t test. cAMP medium increased TEER by 34.4 Ω/cm2 compared with control, whereas thrombin decreased TEER by 14.8 Ω/cm2.



Graphs showing the effect of “cAMP medium” (containing 2 μM RO-20-1724 and 300 μM pCPT-cAMP; A) or thrombin (1 U/ml; B) on passage of FITC-BSA through GEnC monolayers over time. Points show mean ± SEM, n = 10, P = 0.003 for effect of cAMP; n = 10, P < 0.0005 for effect of thrombin by repeated measures [rm] ANOVA.
