This product can be used in the following applications. Bone differentiation, Bone remodeling, Bone physiology research, Oncology, Inflammatory studies.
In vivo, they produce a collagen type I rich extracellular matrix called the osteoid. During their development, osteoblasts undergo a maturation process called osteogenesis. When they become encased in the bone matrix, they stop proliferating and become osteocytes.
Ordering information: Primary Human Osteoblasts can be ordered as cryopreserved or proliferating cells. Additional cell pellets stored in RNAlater® are available.
