Primary cultures of mice proximal tubular cells

Proximal tubular cells are isolated by magnetic sorting coupled with microbeads-conjugated anti-Prominin-1 antibodies. Prominin-1 colocalizes with Megalin in normal and pathological kidneys.

Proximal tubular cells are well-differentiated and keep a proliferative potential after dozens of passages in culture.

Interest / Relevance: Good model for in vitro experiments on the proximal tubule, with the possibility of obtaining primary cell cultures from any mouse strain, including genetically modified animals (upon request).rnproximal tubular injury (schema-reperfusion, toxicants..)
