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, 2]. Dermal fibroblasts have the ability to switch from a proliferative, migratory phase to a contractile, matrix-remodeling phase during wound healing. After injury, integrins, extracellular matrix, and cytokines can modulate fibroblast function in order to stimulate tissue repair [3]. Cultured Bovine Dermal Fibroblasts (BDF) are a useful in vitro model to study the mechanisms of wound healing and to develop therapeutic targets to reduce scarring and fibrosis. 

Bovine Dermal Fibroblasts (BDF) from iXCells Biotechnologiess are isolated from fetal bovine skin. BDF are cryopreserved at passage one and delivered frozen. Each vial contains >5 x 10^5 cells in 1 ml volume. BDF are characterized by immunofluorescence with antibody specific to fibronectin. BDF are negative for mycoplasma, bacteria, yeast, and fungi. BDF are guaranteed to further expand for 5 population doublings in Fibroblast Growth Medium (Cat# MD-0011)
