This part of the laboratory is dedicated to the culture of both cell lines and primary cells. Equipment consist of two biosafety cabinets, two CO2 incubators and the commonly used material for a cell culture room (microscope, centrifuge, thermostated water bath…).
A first part of our work aims to study primary vascular endothelial cells and smooth muscle cells using genetically modified mices: migration, proliferation, secretion and the intracellular signalling.
The second part focuses on the pharmacological caracterisation of hormones receptors (TSHR, LHR...) transiently transfected in COS-7 cells.
