Pericytes - 2 questions (Oct/22/2006 )

I´d like to know if pericytes can be isolated from another tissue different from retina.
And another question, are cocultures with endothelial cells very difficult to grow?

thanks smile.gif


Pericytes are in nearly all vascularized tissues. The question is which pericyte in particular you are interested in.


I am interested in brain pericytes.
