An efficient, nonenzymatic method for isolation and culture of murine aortic endothelial cells and their response to inflammatory stimuli. Huang H1, McIntosh J, Hoyt DG.
Optimization of isolation and functional characterization of primary murine aortic endothelial cells. Magid R1, Martinson D, Hwang J, Jo H, Galis ZS.
The lack of commercially available primary murine endothelial cells prompted us to isolate and cultivate this cell type. We report here the effect of sex steroids on the in vitro growth of murine aortic endothelial cells. Murine aortic endothelial cells were isolated by a combination of explant outgrowth from aortic rings and enzymatic digestion. The endothelial nature of the cells was verified by uptake of acylated low-density lipoprotein and positive staining for CD-31.
(Panel A) Human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) were incubated without the marker to define the autofluorescence of the blank, indicated by horizontal line segment B in each panel. (Panel B) Human umbilical vein endothelial cells, preincubated with di-I- acetylated-LDL (5 [mu]g/ml, 24 h), were fluorescent (marked by horizontal line segment C in the panel). Mouse c\ells were also preincubated for 24 h in the absence (panel C) and presence (panel D) of di-I-acetylated-LDL. Eighty-four percent of the mouse cells in this example were in the fluorescence intensity range defined by HUVEC staining in panel B (horizontal line segment C). The upper half of the mouse cell population was recovered for further culture and characterization as murine aortic endothelial cells.
