Endothelial Cell Growth Kit-VEGF
Endothelial Cell Growth Kit-BBE (ATCC® PCS-100-040) and Endothelial Cell Growth Kit-VEGF (ATCC® PCS-100-041) each contain components that when added to Vascular Cell Basal Medium (ATCC® PCS-100-030) create a complete ATCC® Primary Cell Solution™ culture environment for endothelial cells derived from normal human large vessels (e.g., Normal Primary Human Umbilical Vein Endothelial Cells (HUVEC), ATCC® PCS-100-010 or Primary Aortic Endothelial Cells, ATCC® PCS-100-011). Your experimental design will dictate which Endothelial Cell Growth Kit should be used. Use of the Endothelial Cell Growth Kit-VEGF (ATCC® PCS-100-041) will support a faster rate of proliferation because of the presence of several purified human recombinant (rh) growth factors (rh VEGF, rh EGF, rh FGF basic and rh IGF-1) combined with heparin and hydrocortisone. Use of the Endothelial Cell Growth Kit-BBE (ATCC® PCS-100-040), which contains Bovine Brain Extract (BBE), is recommended if a less defined cell culture medium is desired.
