Data Sheet

Human Tronchial Epithelial Cells (HTEpiC) provided by Innoprot are isolated from human trachea. HTEpiC are cryopreserved at primary culture and delivered frozen.

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


The respiratory epithelium is composed of a mixed population of ciliated, nonciliated, and mucoussecreting cells from proximal to distal airways. The individual characteristics of the subtypes of these cells create not only an effective physical barrier against various noxious substances, but also a highly sophisticated host defense system by producing and releasing a large number of chemical mediators and cytokines. The tracheal epithelium consists of the surface epithelial cells and mucus glands. The surface epithelial cells are made up of three principle cell types: basal, goblet, and ciliated cells, of which the latter two form a suprabasal columnar structure and are necessary for mucociliary clearance. Studies using tracheal epithelial cell culture differentiated to induce a mucociliary phenotype have shown that IL-4 and IL-13 stimulation modulate basic cell functions such as proliferation, ciliary beating, and mucous production. Cell proliferation, as well as various other cellular processes in tracheal epithelial cells, is also regulated in part by EGF receptor signaling.
