Spleen Cell System

Here you can find human splenic 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 vascular endothelial cells contribute to the maintenance of vascular homeostasis. They synthesize and secrete activators as well as inhibitors of both the coagulation system and the fibrinolysis system, and mediators that influence the adhesion and aggregation of blood platelets. Endothelial cells also release molecules that control cell proliferation and modulate vessel wall tone. Many of these, and other, processes can be studied in vitro using cultured cells, and human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC) are the most commonly used cell type for such studies.
