Product Description

Smooth muscle cell (SMC) is the cellular substate of most significant arterial disease [1]. The increased growth potential of vascular SMC represents one of the crucial anomalies responsible for the development of essential vascular diseases. New studies demonstrate that SMC express calcium channels [2] and the expression of ICAM-1 and VCAM-1 on SMC may contribute to the inflammatory reaction in the vascular wall and may actively be involved in the progression and stability of vascular disease [3]. In vitro culture of human vascular SMC as a model of vascular research played a critical role and continues providing information in the pharmacology and the therapy of vascular diseases.

Human Aortic Smooth Muscle Cells-adult (HASMC-a) from iXCells Biotechnologies are isolated from human aorta. HASMC-a are cryopreserved at secondary culture after purification and delivered frozen. Each vial contains >5 x 10^5 cells in 1 ml volume. HASMC-a are characterized by immunofluorescent method with antibodies to α-smooth muscle actin and desmin. HASMC-a are negative for HIV-1, HBV, HCV, mycoplasma, bacteria, yeast and fungi. HASMC-a are guaranteed to further expand for 13 population doublings in Smooth Muscle Cell Growth Medium (Cat # MD-0034).
