The aim of this study was to purify microvessels from bovine retina and also to cultivate bovine retinal endothelial cells (BRECs) or intramural pericytes, to determine their fatty acid composition. Microvessels were obtained after Dounce homogenization of the retina followed by centrifugation on albumin cushion and finally microvessels in the pellet were trapped on a 100-microns nylon filter. Contamination of microvessel preparations by neuronal tissue, assessed after both microscopic… CONTINUE READING
