Rat Dermal Fibroblasts: RDF (Cryovial)

biological source

rat dermis (Sprague Dawley)

growth mode



2n = 42



General description

RDF have been used in allogenic prosthetic grafts, demonstrating improved epithelization, collagen organization and faster regeneration (Nomoto, 2012), in a cell sheet engineering study, where a sheet of dermal fibroblasts was transplanted into the damaged liver in allogeneic rat model to promote migration of hepatic progenitor cells and faster healing (Muraoka, 2013), and as a control in engineered cardiac tissues (Serrao, 2012).
