GFP expressing human umbilical vein endothelial cells were isolated from normal human umbilical vein and transfected with GFP-lentiviral particles at passage 1. Puromycin resistant GFP-HUVECs are passage 3 and are shipped frozen (or in proliferating culture with a confluency of >90 %, GF01-T25). ENDO-Growth Media (MED001) is recommended for culture. Cells have an average additional population doubling levels >18 when cultured. 

Characterization of the cells
  • Cytoplasmic VWF / Factor VIII: >95% positive by immunofluorescence
  • Cytoplasmic uptake of Di-I-Ac-LDL: >95% positive by immunofluorescence
  • Cytoplasmic PECAM1 >95% positive by immunofluorescence

HUVECs are negative for HIV-1, HBV, HCV, and mycoplasma.

Images

IVSWT-mediated HUVEC vasculogenesis. (A) Overview of the treatment setup for stimulation of EC/ASC co-cultures in fibrin. (B) Fluorescent images of non-treated versus treated LEC and HUVEC networks on day 7. (C) Quantifications of HUVEC networks. IVSWT increased the number of junctions, tubules and the total tubule length. The mean tubule length was decreased. P-values: *** ≤0.01, ** ≤0.1, * ≤0.5. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0114806.g002.
