Rat Cardiac Microvascular Endothelial Cells (rCarMVECs) were isolated from healthy rat hearts. GFP-rCarMVECs were selected from puromycin-resistant cells after being infected with GFP expressing Lentiviruses. Endothelial Growth Medium (cAP-02) is recommended for the expansion of rCarMVECs. And we warranty a minimum of 5 passages of the cells if cultured following the detailed protocol described below).
1.Positive for PECAM-1.
2.Positive for VEGFR-2
3.rCarMVECs are tested negative for common animal pathogen and mycoplasma.
The cells are offered for Research Use Only.
Frozen Vials in a Dry Ice Package.
When you receive the dry ice package with cells in frozen vials, transfer the frozen vials of cells into a -80C freezer for short period storage or into a liquid nitrogen tank for long-term storage.
A)Pre-coating of T25 flasks- Add 2ml each Quick Coating Solution (cAP-01) into a T25 flask to cover the whole surface of the flask, 5 mins later, dispose the excessive coating solution by aspiration and the flask is ready to be used.
B)Thaw the frozen cell vial in a 37C water bath first, and then transfer the cells into the pre-coated T25 flask with 10ml of cAP-02 medium, cells usually become confluent overnight and ready to be passaged.
C)To passage the cells, rinse the cells in a T25 flask with 5ml HBSS (RT) twice; then add 2ml Trypsin/EDTA (RT) (cAP-23) into one T25 flask; gently dispose the excessive Trypsin/EDTA solution within 20 seconds by aspiration.
D)Leave the T25 flask with the cells at RT or 37C for 1 min (most cells usually will detach from the surface within 1-2 mins; or monitor the cells under a microscope until most of cells become rounded up, and then gently tap the flask against the bench surface, and the cells will move on the surface of the flask when monitoring under microscope.
E)Add 5ml Trypsin Neutralization Buffer and spin down the cells with 800g centrifugation for 5 mins.
G)Re-suspend the cell pellet with 10 or 15ml cAP-02 medium and transfer 5 ml each into 2 or 3 pre-coated T25 flasks (for 1/2 to 1/3 subculture ratio).
H)Change medium every 2 or 3days and the cells usually become confluent within 7 days (when split at a 1/3 ratio).
I)To prepare quiescent cells, when cells are nearly confluent, replace cAP-02 with Endothelial Basal Medium (cAP-03) containing 0.5%FBS for about 8-12hrs before your experiments.

Handling human and animal tissue derived products is potentially bio-hazardous. Although each cell strain is tested negative for HIV, HBV and HCV DNA, or pathogens, diagnostic tests are not necessarily 100% accurate; therefore proper precautions must be taken to avoid inadvertent exposure. Always wear gloves and safety glasses when working with these materials.
