Human Mammary Epithelial Cells
 
(HMEpC)

Human Mammary Epithelial Cells (HMEpC) are derived from normal adult mammary glands. They are cryopreserved at fifth passage. HMEpC can be cultured and propagated 16 population doublings. It was shown that normal HMEpC have a high amount of cyclin-dependent kinase 6 activity, which restrains HMEpC proliferation, and loss or down-regulation of cdk 6 may play a role in breast tumor development1. Transforming HMEpC to immortality and malignancy was a useful model for studying early breast carcinogenesis2. Autocrine colony-stimulating factor receptors may contribute to invasive progression in epithelial cancer was demonstrated in a 3-dimensional culture of HMEpC3.


Each lot tested negative for HIV, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C and negative for mycoplasma, bacteria, yeast, fungi.
