Endothelial Cells: Confocal Microscopy Digital Image Gallery

The Olympus Microscopy Resource Center galleries include images of fluorescent specimens, as well as darkfield, phase contrast, and Hoffman modulation contrast photomicrographs. In addition, the gallery features streaming video and images from featured microscopists.

Bovine Pulmonary Artery Endothelial Cells (BPAE Line)

The BPAE cell line was initiated in January 1979 by P. Del Vecchio from the main stem of a pulmonary artery belonging to a young cow (Bos taurus). Pulmonary arteries, which extend from the heart to the lungs, are the only arteries in the mammalian body that carry dark, unoxygenated blood. The BPAE line of endothelial cells is positive for bovine diarrhea virus, one of the most important known bovine viral pathogens, which causes a broad array of clinical syndromes that result in significant losses in the beef industry each year. BPAE cells are also positive for angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE), an enzyme that is intricately involved in the maintenance of blood pressure and volume. Due to this fact, BPAE cells are often utilized in hypertension research as well as studies of atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease.

Mouse Hemangioendothelioma Endothelial Cells (EOMA Line)

A hemangioendothelioma is any of a broad group of tumors that arise from the endothelium of a blood vessel. The epithelial EOMA cell line was initiated from mixed hemangioendothelioma tissue excised from an adult mouse (Mus musculus). EOMA cells express vascular addressin (an endothelial cell adhesion molecule) and surface receptors for acetylated low-density lipoprotein.
