Endothelial Cell Biology
The Endothelial Cell Biology Core at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center's Center for Vascular Biology Research provides custom isolated and purification human and murine endothelial cells.
Human Endothelial Cells
Cells are isolated and purified from human skin using magnetic beads and antibodies to CD31, and are >98% positive for acetyl-LDL and VE-cadherin (i.e., represent vascular endothelial cells). Further custom purification is done depending on the needs of the investigator. Lineage specific (blood / lymphatic) or surface marker specific purifications can be done based on available antibodies.
Murine Endothelial Cells
Cells are isolated using the same magnetic bead technology from hearts or lungs provided by the investigator. The cells are >95% positive for acetyl-LDL. 1 bottle of growth media and instructions are provided with each lot of cells.
