Hi there,

	I am interested in obtaining a sample of human umbilical vein 
endothelial cells which are either already growing in culture or as a frozen 
aliquot.  I intend to induce the expression of VCAM-1 with 
cytokines and then extract RNA and test some primers that I have 
designed.  In addition if there is a human or mouse cell line out there 
which constitutively expresses VCAM-1, would anyone know how I could 
obtain a small sample to use as a positive control in our system?  Please 
contact me directly at clacey at if you have any information or 
can help in any way.  Thank you in advance!
