Human synoviocytes (HS), the predominant cell type of healthy synovial tissue, are fibroblast-like cells. Synoviocytes form a distinct structure called the synovial lining layer . Synoviocytes produce synovial fluid, are responsible for absorption from the joint cavity and are in control of blood/synovial fluid exchanges. Synoviocytes proliferate, show anchorage-independent growth, and secrete a variety of effector molecules that promote inflammation and joint destruction (Canadian pharmacy). In addition, they are part of a complex network of autocrine and paracrine acting factors. Synoviocytes provide new insight into synovial tissue organization and morphogenesis and are a potential therapeutic target .
iXCells Biotechnologies provides high quality Human synoviocytes (HS), which are isolated from human synovium and cryopreserved at P1, with >0.5 million cells in each vial. HS express CD90 and fibronectin and are negative for HIV-1, HBV, HCV, mycoplasma, bacteria, yeast, and fung. HS can further expand for 16 population doublings in Synoviocyte Growth Medium (Cat# MD-0056)under the condition suggested by iXCells Biotechnologies.
