The proximal tubule is the portion of the duct system of the nephron of the kidney which leads from Bowman\'s capsule to the loop of Henle.  It has a single epithelial cell layer. The luminal surface of the epithelial cells of the proximal tubule is covered with millions of microvilli that form a brush border and increase surface area.  HRPTEpCs have a pivotal role in kidney function including reabsorbtion of glucose and protein, and also play a part in the glucotoxicity associated with diabetes. 

Human Renal Proximal Tubular Epithelial Cells (HRPTEpC) provide a useful tool for studying various aspects of pathology and biology of  the human renal proximal tubular cells in vitroHRPTEpC from Cell Applications, Inc. have recently been used in a study of metabolic enzymes responding to energy depletion in renal cells (Jackson, 2014).

Characterization: the cells have a characteristic morphology consistent with an epithelial origin and are positive for epithelial cell marker cytokeratin 18.

Tissue:
Normal human kidney.  Each lot is tested negative for HIV, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, mycoplasma, bacteria, and fungi.
Cryopreserved ampoule:
First or second passage, >500,000 cells in RenaEpi Basal Medium containing 10% FBS & 10% DMSO.
Kit contains:
Ampoule of cryopreserved HRPTEpC (930-05), 500 ml RenaEpi Growth Medium (911-500), and a Subculture Reagent Kit (090K).
Proliferating Cells:
 
Shipped in RenaEpi Cell Transfer Medium at third passage in either flasks or multiwell plates.
Population doublings:
Can be cultured at least 3 population doublings for adult HRPTEpC and 10 population doublings for neonatal HRPTEpC
