Hyperglycemia promotes epithelial-mesenchymal-transition and stem cell properties in pancreatic ductal epithelial cells. Pancreatic ductal epithelial cells are utmost importance in studies related to pancreatic cancer.

≥ 70 % on revival from cryopreserved state*
Minimum BSL-1 containment.
Kosheeka recommends proper safety procedures as described in all scientific literature to be undertaken when handling primary cells. Although primary cells isolated from non-diseased donors are not known to cause disease in healthy adult humans.
Human Material Precaution
All tissues used for isolation are obtained under informed consent and conform to protect the privacy of the donor’s personal health information. It is best to use caution when handling any human cells. We recommend that all human cells be accorded the same level of biosafety consideration as cells known to carry HIV. With infectious virus assays or viral antigen assays, even a negative test result may leave open the possible existence of a latent viral genome.
Assay of cell-cell interaction, adhesion, PCR, Western blot, immunoprecipitation, immunofluorescent flow cytometry, or generating cell derivatives for desired research applications.
