Data Sheet

Human Ovarian Surface Epithelial Cells (HOSEpiC) provided by Innoprot are isolated by ScienCell Research Laboratories from human ovarian tissue. HOSEpiC are cryopreserved at primary culture and delivered frozen. HOSEpiC are guaranteed to further expand for 10 population doublings in the conditions provided by Innoprot.

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


The human ovary is covered with a single layer of flat to cuboidal surface epithelial cells (OSE). OSE are physiologically involved in follicular rupture and the subsequent repair of the follicle wall during reproductive age. OSE exhibit a gland formation in coculture with endometrial stromal cells in an estrogen-rich environment. The phenotypic plasticity of these cells shares a mesenchymal property when they are cultured on two layers of extracellular matrix and collagen gel. OSE are the source of epithelial ovarian carcinomas. Understanding the mechanisms that regulate OSE cell survival, apoptosis, and cell growth is of great clinical importance because an aberrant signaling of any of these pathways is likely to be involved in epithelial ovarian cancer.
