Product Description

Fibroblasts are mesenchymal cells derived from the embryonic mesoderm. They have been extensively used for a wide range of cellular and molecular studies as they are one of easiest types of cells to grow in culture. Their durability also makes them amenable to a variety of manipulations ranging from studies employing gene transfection to microinjection. In general, fibroblasts secrete a non-rigid extracellular matrix which is rich in type I and/or type III collagen [1]. There is evidence showing that fibroblasts in various organs are intrinsically different [2]. In the lymphoid compartment, fibroblasts construct a unique conduit system with intriguing size exclusion which plays a fundamental role in regulating immune response and homeostasis of tissue fluids [3].

iXCells Biotechnologies provides high quality Rat Lymphatic Fibroblasts (RLF), which are isolated from rat lymph node and cryopreserved at P0, with >0.5 million cells in each vial. RLF are characterized by their spindle-shaped morphology. They are negative for HIV-1, HBV, HCV, mycoplasma, bacteria, yeast, and fungi and can further expand for 5 population doublings in Fibroblast Growth Medium (Cat# MD-0011) under the condition suggested by iXCells Biotechnologies.
