Airway epithelial cells represent a critical barrier that defends the airways against the environment and form apical-junctional complexes that are key to maintaining barrier function. Each area has a different composition of cell types to perform distinct functions thereby maintaining the integrity of the epithelium and lung function. Airway epithelium typically has a low, yet constant, turnover rate in which cells damaged by the environment are replaced. Although composed of the same major cell types, ciliated, undifferentiated columnar, secretory, and basal cells, the large airway epithelium is pseudostratified whereas the small airway epithelium is simpler and columnar. Airway epithelial cells play an essential role in the innate immune system via the production of antimicrobial substances, secretion of chemokines and cytokines and the promotion of mycociliary clearance. Dysfunctional airway epithelium is linked to many respiratory disases including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma. Primary and low passage airway cells therefore have many applications including as in vitro disease models or for immunology, inhalation and air/liquid interface studies.
Axol human airway epithelial cells are derived from resected tissue that has been isolated from different regions of the lung as follows:

  • Bronchial/Tracheal Airway Epithelial Cells isolated from the trachea or upper bronchial region of the lungs.
  • Large Airway Epithelial Cells isolated from the lobar (secondary) bronchus.
  • Small Airway Epithelial Cells isolated from the small airways (less than 2 mm) of the lungs.
