Abstract

A procedure is described for the establishment and propagation of epithelial cell rich cultures derived from normal human kidney cortex (NHK-C cells). Cells are harvested from tissue fragments of donor human kidney by progressive enzymatic dissociation. NHK-C cultures are morphologically heterogeneous but exhibit, predominantly, the functional characteristics of cells of the kidney proximal tubule.
