Bovine Endometrial Epithelial Cells, BEnEpC

Bovine Endometrial Epithelial Cells (BEnEpC) are isolated from epithelium of the bovine endometrium. The cells are cryopreserved at second passage. BEnEpC can be cultured and propagated for at least 10 population doublings. BEnEpC are commonly used with Bovine Endometrial Stromal Cells as an in vitro model for studying maternal recognition of pregnancy, such as the effects of IFN-t and oxytocin,1,2,3 the effects of prostaglandins on the maintenance, or lack thereof, of pregnancy,3,4 and the effects of estradiol and progesterone.5 In addition, it has been shown that BEnEpC can maintain embryo development to blastocyte stage as effectively as oviductal cells.6
