Fibroblasts are the most common cells in connective tissue, and their main function is to continuously secreting extracelluar matrix proteins such as collagens, glycoproteins and glycosaminoglycans to maintain the structural integrity of the connective tissue. Dermal fibroblasts play critical role during wound healing by producing extracellular matrix and wound healing mediators [1,2]. Therefore, dermal fibroblasts are well suited for wound healing studies. They can be used for wound healing studies and dermatological research to investigate various skin diseases. Additionally, fibroblasts are important for tissue regeneration, cancer research and tissue engineering studies.
iXCells Biotechnologies provides high quality primary Mouse Dermal Fibroblasts-neonatal (MDFB-n), which are isolated from the dermis of neonatal mouse skin and cryopreserved at P1, with >1 million cells in each vial. MDFB-n are negative for HIV-1, HBV, HCV, mycoplasma, bacteria, yeast, and fungi. They can further expand for 1 population doublings in Fibroblast Growth Medium (Cat# MD-0011) under the condition suggested by iXCells Biotechnologies.
