Product Description

The most abundant cell type in lung interstitium is fibroblasts. They resemble ordinary fibroblasts but have some distinguishing features, such as long branching processes and gap junctions. The main function of Human Pulmonary Fibroblasts (HPF) is to produce type III collagen, elastin, and proteoglycans of the extracellular matrix of the alveolar septa. HPF play an important role in the repair and remodeling processes following injury. The controlled accumulation of fibroblasts to sites of inflammation is crucial to effective tissue repair after injury [1]. Either inadequate or excessive accumulation of fibroblasts could result in abnormal tissue function. For example, the excess proliferation of fibroblasts contributes to the adventitial thickening observed during the development of hypoxia-induced pulmonary hypertension [2].

iXCells Biotechnologies provides high quality HPF-a, which are isolated from adult human lung tissue and cryopreserved at P1, with >0.5 million cells in each vial. HPF-a express fibronectin and are negative for HIV-1, HBV, HCV, mycoplasma, bacteria, yeast, and fungi. They can further expand in Fibroblast Growth Medium(Cat# MD-0011) under the condition suggested by iXCells Biotechnologies.
