The function of fibroblasts is related to maintenance and tissue metabolism. They are in activated state of metabolism. Fibroblasts provide the structural fibers and ground substance of connective tissue.
Compared to other fibroblast cell types, dermal fibroblasts show only weak affinity to change into other cell types. For cell replication, higher amounts of growth factors are required. Hence proliferation can be stimulated by the presence of our growth factor (FGF).
default_titleProliferating cultures are assured for experimental use for at least 16 population doublings. Subcultures and additional population doublings are usually possible. But resulting growth rate, the ability to sufficiently response biologically, and the cell function might deteriorate with subsequent passages.
