Product Description

Human Dermal Microvascular Endothelial Cells (HDMVEC) from blood vessels of skin, form the interface between intravascular and extravascular compartments in skins. Compared to endothelial cells elsewhere in the body, HDMVEC exhibit several skin specific characteristics. They actively participate in a variety of physiological processes including wound healing, control of hemostasis, temperature regulation, and modulation of inflammation/leukocyte trafficking [1]. Via proliferation, quiescence, apoptosis, and senescence, HDMVEC show remarkable phenotypic and functional heterogeneity, which in turn allows the cutaneous microvasculature to be in a dynamic balance between maintenance and remodeling [2,3].

iXCells Biotechnologies provides high quality HDMVEC isolated from human skin blood vessels and cryopreserved at P2, with ≥0.5 million cells in each vial. These HBMVEC express von Willebrand Factor (vWF), CD31 (PECAM), and E-Cadherin. They are negative for HIV-1, HBV, HCV, mycoplasma, bacteria, yeast, and fungi and can be further expanded for no more than 3 passages in Endothelial Cell Growth Medium (Cat# MD-0010) under the condition suggested by iXCells Biotechnologies. Further expansion may decrease the purity.
