Product Description

The human rectum is located in the lower gastrointestinal tract and functions as a temporary storage site for fecal material. Endothelial cells in the rectum line the interior surface of the blood vessels and form the interface between intravascular and extravascular compartments. Endothelial cells limit the passage of cellular and soluble substances between the blood vessels and the tissues [1]. Endothelial cells also play critical roles in angiogenesis, vasculogenesis, and the inflammatory response [1]. Human rectal microvascular endothelial cells (HRecMEC) have been implicated as a major contributing factor to the progression of rectal cancer [2, 3]. HRecME are a useful in vitro model to elucidate the mechanisms of angiogenesis and to develop treatments for rectal cancer.

iXCells Biotechnologies provides high quality HRecMEC, which are isolated from human rectum and cryopreserved at P1, with >0.5 million cells in each vial. HRecMEC express vWF/Factor VIII and CD31 (PECAM). They are negative for HIV-1, HBV, HCV, mycoplasma, bacteria, yeast, and fungi and can further expand for 10 population doublings in  Endothelial Cell Growth Medium (Cat# MD-0010) under the condition suggested by iXCells Biotechnologies.
