Lymphatic Cell System

Here you can find lymphatic endothelial cells and fibroblasts. You can also find medium to grow the cells as well as RNA, DNA and protein derived from these cells.

The lymphatic system is an essential part of the immune system. It serves distinct yet complementary function with the blood vascular system in maintaining tissue homeostasis. The lymphatic system returns fluid and macromolecules from the tissues back into blood circulation and, thus, plays a vital role in the regulation of fluid, protein, and pressure equilibrium in tissues. Although lymphatic capillary endothelial cells have many properties in common with the endothelium of blood vessels, they also have distinct structural characteristics reflecting their specific functions.

Fibroblasts are mesenchymal cells derived from the embryonic mesoderm. They are one of easiest types of cells to grow in culture, and their durability makes them amenable to a wide variety of manipulations ranging from studies employing gene transfection to microinjection. There is good evidence that fibroblasts in different parts of the body are intrinsically different. Fibroblasts within tissues are exposed to a dynamic mechnical environment, which influences the structure integrity of both healthy and healing soft tissue.
