HUMAN RENAL PROXIMAL TUBULAR EPITHELIAL CELLS (RPTEC)

HUMAN RENAL PROXIMAL TUBULAR EPITHELIAL CELLS (RPTEC)

The proximal tubule of the kidney is the primary site of exposure to a variety of toxicants, and thus is a key cell type for use in studies aimed at modeling or measuring drug responses. The proximal tubule also plays an active role in several homeostatic processes, including protein uptake, drug and solute transport, and metabolism. Isolated proximal tubular cells that possess and maintain phenotype and function over time may serve as useful tools in compound screening or as components of complex, multi-cellular model systems.
