Product Information
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 transverse myelitis (TM). TM is a neurological disorder caused by an inflammatory process of gray and white matter of the spinal cord, which can result in axonal demyelination. The cause of transverse myelitis is not understood but is considered to arise idiopathically associated with an immune-mediated inflammation following infections or vaccinations, or due to multiple sclerosis.
Origin Human
Development Period Postnatal
Disease State Transverse Myelitis (TM)
