Data Sheet

Human Esophageal Smooth Muscle Cells (HESMC) provided by Innoprot are isolated by ScienCell Research Laboratories from human esophagus. HESMC are cryopreserved at secondary culture after purification and delivered frozen.

Innoprot also offers optimized medium and reagents for the growth of Human Esophageal Smooth Muscle Cells which are quality tested together and guaranteed to give maximum performance as a global solution for in vitro HESMC 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. Visceral smooth muscle cells makes up all three layers that contains the human esophagus except for the most rostral few centimeters. Smooth muscle contraction is critical to peristalsis in the human esophagus 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 cultured human esophageal smooth muscle cells express voltage-dependent Na(+) channels.
