Data Sheet

Human Gastric Smooth Muscle Cells (HGSMC) provided by Innoprot are isolated from human stomach. HGSMC are cryopreserved at primary culture and delivered frozen. HGSMC are guaranteed to further expand for 15 population doublings at the conditions provided in the data sheet.

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


Smooth muscle is responsible for the contractility of hollow organs, such as blood vessels, the gastrointestinal tract, the bladder, and the uterus. Its structure differs greatly from that of skeletal muscle. The human stomach contains three layers of muscle in its walls, the outer longitudinal, the middle circular and the inner oblique and visceral smooth muscle cells makes up all three layers along the entire organ. Smooth muscle contraction is critical to peristalsis in the human stomach and the contraction may be mediated by activation of phospholipase through two distinct mechanisms (increased intracellular Ca2+ and G protein activation) and activating PKCepsilon-dependent mechanisms. In vitro study also shows that gastric smooth muscle cells express ET and eNOS and both calcium and sodium may be involved as current carriers in the generation of the plateau potential.
