Cardiac fibroblasts form the major part of heart tissue. They produce connective tissue which maintains the extracellular matrix of the heart. They are essential in studying proper heart function and physilogy. Research using these cells includes neointimal formation, tissue remodeling, myocardial and vascular repair, toxicology and drug screening, genetic therapy, extracellular repair, growth factors and cytokines.
Proliferating: ≥500000 viable cells shipped in appropriate growth medium (T25 Flask).
Cryopreserved: A cryogeneic vial containing ≥500000 cells
