SV40 early region immortalized human renal proximal tubular epithelial cell line

The cell line can be grown without limitation and is characterized by expression of several cell type specific markers and functions such as:

  • Typical epithelial cobblestone morphology
  • > 90% positive cells for CD13,
  • Expression of E-Cadherin, ZO-1
