Endothelial cells are the primary barrier cells that line blood vessels and sinusoids of the liver. Human Liver-derived Endothelial Cells (HLECs) are isolated and enriched from liver tissue, then cryopreserved for use in a wide range of research models.
HLECs are characterized for markers of endothelial cells, including CD31, vWF, and LYVE-1 as shown by flow cytometry and maintain appropriate endothelial morphology over limited serial passaging. Human liver-derived endothelial cells are derived from whole livers leading to a mixed population of vascular endothelial cells and sinusoidal endothelial cells.
The recommended medium for HLECs is EGM™ 2 which is optimized for endothelial cell health and growth.
