Data Sheet

Human Colonic Epithelial Cells (HCoEpiC) provided by Innoprot are isolated by ScienCell Research Laboratories from human colonic tissue. HCoEpiC are cryopreserved at passage one and delivered frozen.

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


The colorectum is a major organ for both malignant and nonmalignant diseases. Cells that line the colonic mucosal surface form a major mechanical barrier that separates the host’s internal milieu from the external environment. In addition to the well-established role of epithelial cells in ion transport, these cells appear to function as an integral component of the mucosal immune system. Human colon epithelial cells can process and present antigens to T cells in vitro, and can be stimulated to express HLA class II and intercellular adhesion molecules in vivo. They also respond to a broad array of cytokines with altered gene expression and growth characteristics. In addition, normal colonic epithelial cells were found to express the integrin α3, α5, α6, β1 and β4 chains.
