Cultures of normal human urothelial cells from ureters of perfused cadaver transplant kidneys.

Abstract

In this comparative study, we report that urothelial cultures initiated from ureters of mechanically perfused cadaver-obtained transplant kidneys display characteristics of explant attachment, explant viability, cellular morphology and area of outgrowth essentially indistinguishable from cultures established from ureters of living donor kidneys. We conclude that ureter specimens from cadaver kidneys are a suitable, routinely available source of tissue from which cultures of normal human urothelial cells can be propagated.
