Human renal proximal tubule epithelial cells stained for gamma gtp

Clonetics™ Human Renal Cells include cells isolated from various normal human kidney tissue specific to each cell type.  Human Renal Proximal Tubule Cells (RPTEC) are isolated from the proximal tubule. Renal Epithelial Cells (HRE) are a mixture of epithelial cells from the cortex and glomerular. Renal Cortical Cells (HRCE) are a mixture of proximal tubule and distal tubule. Mesangial Cells (NHMC) are isolated from the renal glomerulus and modified SMC between capillaries.
