Data Sheet

Human Tonsil Epithelial Cells (HTEpiC) are isolated from human tonsils. HTEpiC are cryopreserved at passage one and delivered frozen. HTEpiC are characterized by their spindle morphology and immunofluorescent method with antibody to fibronectin. HTEpiC are guaranteed to further expand for 15 population doublings at the condition provided.

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


Tonsil epithelium is a heterogeneous lymphoid organ containing two different types of actively differentiating epithelia, the lining stratified squamous epithelium and the reticulated crypt, or lymphoepithelium. The tonsil crypts represent a specialized compartment, important in the immunological functions of the tonsil because of the immediate proximity of the epithelial and lymphoid tissues. In Situ staining of tonsil epithelium suggests that expression of the simple epithelial keratins K8, K18 and K19 is located to the crypt epithelial cells. Cell culture of tonsil epithelium produces heterogeneous squamous epithelial culture in which differentiation appears to be ongoing and keratin expression patterns are consistent with those found in tonsil epithelial cells in situ.
