Data Sheet

Human Prostate Epithelial Cells (HPEpiC) provided by Innoprot are isolated by ScienCell Research Laboratories from human normal prostate tissue. HPEpiC are cryopreserved at passage one cultures and delivered frozen. HPEpiC are guaranteed to further expand for 15 population doublings at the condition provided by Innoprot.

Innoprot also offers optimized medium and reagents for the growth of Human Fibroblasts which are quality tested together and guaranteed to give maximum performance as a global solution for in vitro HPEpiC culture.


The prostate is a major accessory organ of the male mammalian reproductive system whose structure and functional activities are under the control of androgens. It is composed of three compartments that are distinguished by their cytokeratin expression profile. The basal cells express predominantly high molecular weight cytokeratins (CK5 and CK14), the luminal secretory cells express predominantly low molecular weight cytokeratin (CK8 and CK18) and the intermediate cells express a combination of basal and luminal cytokeratins. There is increasing evidence that basal epithelial cells differentiate into luminal epithelial cells. The prostate epithelial cell culture provides unique opportunities to study many important features of the prostate as well as chemical and hormonal carcinogenesis.
