Catalog Number ASE-5055
Quantity 5.0 x 105 cells/mL
Description Human fibroblasts are derived from cultured skin explants. These fibroblasts are from a single donor. Fibroblasts enable researchers to study skin diseases such as dermatitis, wound healing, and other diseases that are expressed in fibroblasts. In addition, they may be used to study the development of skin and production of inducible pluripotent stem cells to study disease models.
These fibroblasts are isolated from an individual who has been clinically diagnosed with Legg-Calve-Perthes syndrome (LCP), a degenerative disease of the hip joint caused by a reduction in blood flow to the joint, which leads to some degree of collapse to the hip joint and deformity to the ball of the femur. The cause of LCP is unknown.
Development Period Postnatal
Disease State Legg-Calve-Perthes Syndrome (LCP)
Quality Control All cell processing is validated under strict protocols with IRB approval. All cells are guaranteed to meet or exceed customer’s expectations when handled according to instructions.
