Data Sheet

Human Pulmonary Microvascular Endothelial Cells (HPMEC) provided by Innoprot are isolated by ScienCell Research Laboratories from human Lung. HPMEC are cryopreserved immediately after purification and delivered frozen.

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



The PMEC form a semiselective barrier that is critical for lung gas exchange and regulation of fluid and solute passage between the blood and interstitial compartments in the lung. They also have metabolic properties that enable it to carry out certain important nonrespiratory function. The PMEC are among the most important targets of reactive oxygen species elaborated in lung injury. During the course of lung inflammation, neurohumoral mediators and oxidants act on endothelial cells to induce intercellular gaps permissive for transudation of proteinaceous fluid from blood into the interstitium. The increased permeability leads to the hypoxemia associated with adult respiratory distress syndrome and noncardiogenic pulmonary edema.
