Data Sheet

Human Esophageal Epithelial Cells (HEEC) provided by Innoprot are isolated by ScienCell Research Laboratories from human esophagus. HEEC are cryopreserved on passage one and delivered frozen.

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


The human esophagus is lined by a nonkeratinizing, most stratified squamous epithelium whose apical cell membranes and intercellular junctional complexes combine to produce an effective permeability barrier against the influx of luminal content. Histologically, the esophageal epithelium consists of two zones, the basal and differentiated zones. Cellular proliferation is limited to the basal zone, and cells are thought to migrate from this area towards the esophageal lumen. Migration is associated with the initiation of differentiation and the sequential expression of differentiation markers. The availability of human esophageal epithelial cell culture provides an excellent in vitro model in the study of the physiology of esophageal epithelium and the mechanisms of the esophageal carcinogenesis.
