Product Description

The respiratory epithelium is composed of a mixed population of ciliated, nonciliated, and mucous-secreting cells from proximal to distal airways. The individual characteristics of these cells create not only an effective physical barrier against various noxious substances, but also a highly sophisticated host defense system by producing and releasing a large number of chemical mediators and cytokines [1]. The bronchial epithelium consists of the surface epithelial cells and mucus glands. The surface epithelial cells are made up of three principle cell types: basal, goblet, and ciliated cells, of which the latter two form a suprabasal columnar structure and are necessary for mucociliary clearance. Studies using human primary bronchial epithelial cells (HBEpC) have demonstrated that IL-4 and IL-13 stimulation can modify cellular proliferation, ciliary beating, and mucous production [2]. HBEpC proliferation is also regulated in part by EGF receptor signaling [3]. HBEpC provide an excellent model system to study all aspects of epithelial function and disease, particularly those related to airway viral infections, as well as tissue repair mechanisms, signaling changes and potential treatments relevant to lung injuries, mechanical and oxidative stress, inflammation, pulmonary diseases and smoking. 

HBEpC from iXCells Biotechnologies are isolated from human bronchi. HBEpC are cryopreserved at P1 and delivered frozen. Each vial contains >5 x 10^5 cells in 1 ml volume. HBEpC are characterized by immunofluorescence with antibodies specific to CK-18, -19, and vimentin. HBEpC are negative for HIV-1, HBV, HCV, mycoplasma, bacteria, yeast and fungi. HBEpC are guaranteed to further expand for 12 population doublings in Epithelial Cell Growth Medium (Cat# MD-0041).
