Bovine Retinal Capillary Endothelial Cells & Pericytes

Currently EyeCRO has developed the techniques to isolate primary bovine retinal capillary endothelial cells (BRCECs) and pericytes. The Purity of BRCECs and pericytes were confirmed by binding of Dil-Ac-LDL to LDL receptor on the surface of BRCECs and immunolabeling with anti-smooth muscle antibody. These cells have been used in the discovery and development of new ocular drugs. BRCECs and pericytes are isolated from bovine retina. The Purity of BRCECs and pericytes were confirmed by binding of Dil-Ac-LDL (red) to LDL receptor on the surface of BRCECs and immunolabeling with specific antibody against α-smooth muscle actin (green). Nuclei of both cells were counterstained with DAPI (blue).
