Normal Human Kidney Cortical Cells (NhKC)


Normal Human Kidney Cortical cells (NhKC)  are isolated from the kidney cortex after removal of the kidney capsule and medulla.

The cell composition is a heterogeneous population of cells composed by different types of cells. The major type of cells that can be identified are:

  • Proximal tubules
  • Distal tubules
  • Endothelial cells (including glomerular endothelial cells)
  • Mesangial cells
  • Podocytes
  • Interstitial fibroblast
  • Residing renal adult progenitor cells
  • Juxtaglomerular cells

Other than the adult progenitor cells, the NhKC are terminally differentiated.
