Human Alveolar Macrophages are terminally differentiated macrophages that reside in the lung parenchyma. They are mononuclear phagocytes that guard the alveolar-blood barrier and are responsible for scavenging particles, pollutants, and invading pathogens from the airway. When encountered with viruses or large particles, alveolar macrophages (AMs) can secrete cytokines and chemokines to initiate the inflammatory process and recruit neutrophils. They also phagocytose apoptotic and necrotic cells. Altered macrophage activity has been implicated in respiratory infections and allergic lung diseases such as allergic asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD) and pulmonary alveolar proteinosis (PAP).

Why choose Human Alveolar Macrophages from AcceGen?

Human Alveolar Macrophages are derived from healthy human lungs with fully consented donors using AcceGen’s advanced technology. Cells are immediately cryopreserved to ensure the best viability. Each vial contains more than 5×10^5 cells in 1ml volume. Human alveolar macrophages are positive for CD68 or MAC387 by immunofluorescence staining.
