Data Sheet

Human Conjunctival Epithelial Cells (HConEC) provided by Innoprot are isolated from human conjunctiva. HConEC are cryopreserved at primary culture and delivered frozen. HConEC are guaranteed to further expand for 15 population doublings at the condition provided in the data sheet.

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


The conjunctival epithelium is a stratified, non-keratinized epithelium. It can be distinguished by the corneal epithelium by the expression of different cytokeratins, mucins and by the presence of glycocalix. Decrease or loss of mucin/glycocalix production generates squamous metaplasia, which may lead to dry eye and ocular surface diseases. Human conjunctival epithelial cells represent potential target cells for mast cell mediators. They respond to histamine by generating inositol phosphates, mobilizing intracellular calcium, and then secreting proinflammatory cytokines like interleukin-6 and interleukin-8.
