Technique to isolate live renal proximal tubular cells from any mouse strain

We isolate renal proximal tubular cells using the proximal tubular marker Prominin-1. We use a 4°C, enzyme free protocole allowing high quality subsequent analyses (e.g. transcriptome), and obtention of primary cultures.

Interest / Relevance: This allows to study specifically a major cell type of the kidney during in vivo experiments, and to obtain well-differentiated primary proximal tubular cell cultures of any mouse strain for in vitro experiments.
