Data Sheet

Human Retinal Pericytes (HRP) provided by Innoprot have been isolated from human retinal tissue. HRP have been cryopreserved at secondary culture after purification and delivered frozen. HRP are guaranteed to further expand for 10 population doublings in the condition provided in the technical sheet.

Innoprot also offers optimized medium and reagents for the growth of Retinal Microvascular Pericytes which are quality tested together and guaranteed to give maximum performance as a global solution for in vitro pericytes culture.


Pericytes are contractile smooth muscle-like cells that cover the albuminal surface of microvessels. They are most abundant on venules and are common on capillaries. Three major functional roles have been ascribed to pericytes associated with central nervous system microvescular-contractility, regulation of endothelial cell activity, and macrophage activity. There is also evidence that pericytes are involved in the transport across the blood-brain barrier and the regulation of vascular permeability. An important role for pericytes in pathology has been indicated in hypertension, diabetic retinopathy, Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis and central nervous system tumor formation.
