Human Colonic Microvascular Endothelial Cells, Passage 1

Cryopreserved Primary Cells, Single Donor

Endothelial cells lining the microvasculature are known to play a critical “gatekeeper” role in the inflammatory process through their ability to recruit circulating immune cells into tissues and foci of inflammation. Studies show that intestinal microvascular endothelial cells exhibit a strong immune response to LPS challenge and play a critical regulatory role in gut inflammation. Pharmacological inhibition of NOS in activated intestinal microvascular endothelial cells resulted in a significant increase in leukocytes binding. Gene expression profile studies revealed that intestinal endothelial cells express biotinidase, which is involved in biotin recycling. Human colonic microvascular endothelial cell (HCoMEC) cultures have enabled scientists to perform systematic analyses of cytokine profiles with regard to mRNA expression and protein secretion, and to compare these data with cytokine profiles from other endothelial cells.
