General description

Human Renal Proximal Tubular Epithelial Cells (HRPTEpC) provide a useful tool for studying various aspects of pathology and biology of the human renal proximal tubular cells in vitro. HRPTEpC have recently been used in a study of metabolic enzymes responding to energy depletion in renal cells. HRPTEpCs have a pivotal role in kidney function including reabsorbtion of glucose and protein, and also play a part in the glucotoxicity associated with diabetes.
