Human Thymic Epithelial Cells

Human Thymic Epithelial Cells (HTyEpiC) provided by Innoprot are isolated from human healthy thymus. HTyEpiC are cryopreserved at passage one and delivered frozen. Each vial of Human Thymic Epithelial Cells contains more than 500.000 viable cells. They are guaranteed to further culture; however, HTyEpiC are not recommended for expanding or long-term cultures due to limited expansion capacity.

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


Size/Quantity: 500.000 Cells / vial

Human Thymic epithelial cells (TyEpiC) are vital regulators of thymocyte development and T lymphocyte (T-cell) tolerance. The thymus contains two types of TyEpiC; cortical and medullary thymic epithelial cells, which regulate the positive selection of thymocytes and the negative selection of autoreactive T-cells. The inability of TyEpiC to remove autoreactive T-cells in the thymus can affect self-tolerance and contribute to the development of autoimmune diseases such as myasthenia gravis, type 1 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and multiple sclerosis. Human Thymic Epithelial Cells are an excellent in vitro model to study the mechanisms that modulate TyEpiC functionality; but also to develop targeted treatments for autoimmune disorders.
