Human Lens Epithelial Cells

Human Lens Epithelial cells (HLEpiC) provided by Innoprot are isolated from uman lens. HLEpiC are cryopreserved at passage one and delivered frozen. Each vial of Human Lens Epithelial cells contains more than 500.000 viable cells. HLEpiC are guaranteed to further expand for 10 population doublings following the instructions provided in the technical sheet.

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

The mammalian lens consists of two cell types; lens fiber cells which form the bulk of the lens, and a monolayer of epithelial cells that cover the anterior surface of the fibers. Lens epithelial cells are responsible for homeostasis regulation of the lens, including electrolyte and fluid transport. Under normal development, lens epithelial cells progressively differentiate and mature. Lens epithelial cells then migrate from the equatorial region into the interior of the lens to produce transparent crystallins; elongate to form lens fiber cells, and eventually lose their nuclei and other organelles. Lens epithelial cell differentiation and lens polarization depend on growth factors present in the ocular fluids, such as epidermal growth factor, basic fibroblast growth factor, insulin growth factor, and insulin. Human Lens Epithelial Cells provide an invaluable tool for understanding physiological and pathophysiological relevance in lens function and disease.
