Asthmatic Airway Cells

  • Ashtmatic lung fibroblasts (DHLF cells)
  • Ashtmatic Bronchial Epithelial cells (DHBE cells)
  • Ashtmatic Bronchial Smooth Muscle cells (DBSMC cells)
  • Ashtmatic Small Airway Epithelial Cells (D-SAEC cells)

Asthma is an inflammatory disorder of the airways, which causes attacks of wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness, and coughing in patients. Degrees of severity are unique to individual patients as are responses to drug treatments.

Clonetics™ Ashtmatic lung fibroblasts (DHLF cells)

Clonetics™ Ashtmatic Lung fibroblasts cells stain negative for von Willebrand factor VIII, cytokeratins 18 and 19, and alpha smooth muscle actin. All cells test negative for mycoplasma, bacteria, yeast, and fungi. HIV-1, hepatitis B and hepatitis C are not detected for all donors and/or cell lots. A Certificate of Analysis is provided for each cell lot purchased.

Clonetics™ Ashtmatic Bronchial Epithelial cells (DHBE cells)

Clonetics™ Ashtmatic Bronchial Epithelial cells test negative for mycoplasma, bacteria, yeast, and fungi. HIV-1, hepatitis B and hepatitis C are not detected for all donors and/or cell lots. A Certificate of Analysis is provided for each cell lot purchased.

The S-ALI guaranteed DHNE cells are suitable for air-liquid interface studies and are guaranteed to promote full differentiation of the airway epithelium expressed by the formation of a polarized epithelium with good barrier function (transepithelial resistance), secretory phenotype (mucin secretion) and ciliogenesis. Differentiation usually will occur by day 22 in culture.

Clonetics™ Ashtmatic Bronchial Smooth Muscle cells stain positive for alpha smooth muscle actin and negative for von Willebrand factor VIII. All cells test negative for mycoplasma, bacteria, yeast, and fungi. HIV-1, hepatitis B and hepatitis C are not detected for all donors and/or cell lots.
