Human Breast Tumor-Associated Endothelial Cells
Catalog No. HC-6020
Suggested Medium: Complete Human Endothelial Cell Medium– 500ML
Catalog No. H1168
Human Breast Tumor-Associated Endothelial Cells from Cell Biologics are isolated from human breast tumor tissue. Human Breast Tumor-Associated Endothelial Cells are grown in T25 tissue culture flasks pre-coated with gelatin-based solution for 2 min and incubated in Cell Biologics’ Culture Complete Growth Medium generally for 3-7 days. Cultures are then expanded. The method we use to isolate primary endothelial cells was developed based on a combination of established and our proprietary methods. These cells are pre-coated with PECAM-1 antibody, following the application of magnetic beads pre-coated with secondary antibody.
Human Breast Tumor-Associated Endothelial Cells from Cell Biologics display typical cobblestone with large dark nuclei appearance under light microscopy. Cells are tested for expression of endothelial cell marker using antibody, CD31 (Catalog No. 550389, BD; CD31/PECAM-1 PE-conjugated Antibody, Catalog No. FAB3567P, R&D) or VE-Cadherin (FITC-VE-cadherin Catalog No. 560411, BD) by immunofluorescence staining or FACS. All cells test negative for mycoplasma, bacteria, yeast, and fungi. HIV-1, hepatitis B and hepatitis C are not detected for all donors and/or cell lots. Per request, a Certificate of Analysis will be provided for each cell lot purchased. Cells can be expanded for 3-5 passages under the cell culture conditions specified by Cell Biologics. Repeated freezing and thawing of cells is not recommended.
Human Breast Tumor-Associated Endothelial Cells can be used in assays of cell to cell adhesion, migration, vascular tube formation. Standard biochemical procedures performed with endothelial cell cultures include RT-PCR, Western blotting, immunoprecipitation, immunofluorescent staining, immunofluorescent flow cytometry, or generating cell derivatives for desired research applications.
Storage of Cell Biologics’ Products
Cell Biologics ships frozen cells on dry ice. On receipt, immediately transfer frozen cells to liquid nitrogen(-180 °C) until ready for experimental use. Live cell shipment is also available on request.
Never can primary cells be kept at -20 °C.
Authorized Uses of Cell Biologics’ Products
Human Breast Tumor-Associated Endothelial Cells from Cell Biologics are distributed for research purposes only. Our products are not authorized for human use, for in vitro diagnostic procedures or for therapeutic procedures. Transfer or resale of any Cell Biologics’ cells or products from the purchaser to other markets, organizations or individuals is prohibited by Cell Biologics without the company’s written consent.
Cell Biologics’ Terms and Conditions must be accepted before submitting an order.
Appropriate safety procedures should always be used with this material. Although Human Breast Tumor-Associated Endothelial Cells are isolated from normal human tissue, investigators should handle the cells that they receive from Cell Biologics with caution and treat all primary cells as potential pathogens, since no test procedure can completely guarantee the absence of infectious agents.
