Data Sheet

Human Epidermal Melanocytes (HEM) provided by Innoprot are isolated by ScienCell Research Laboratories from human epidermal tissue. HEM are cryopreserved on primary culture and delivered frozen

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


The melanocyte is a neural crest-derived cell that localizes in humans to several organs. The failure of melanocytes to migrate to the locations explains the association of congenital white spotting of the skin (piebaldism) with heterochromia in the iris as well as congenital deafness in Waardenburg syndrome. In the skin, melanocytes synthesize and transfer melanin pigments to surrounding keratinocytes, leading to skin pigmentation and protection against solar exposure. Recent progress in basic cell-culture technology, along with an improved understanding of culture requirements, has led to the success in culturing of this special cell type in pure population and the discovery of a novel melanocyte-specific gene, msg1, which encodes a nuclear protein & is associated with pigmentation.
