A friend of mine needs help culturing Mouse brain capillary endothelial
cells--they won't attach and die soon after.  He uses 20% FBS-DME on 
BTW, what kind of aortic cells?  Bovine?  They are easy to isolate
and culture.  Iwould think there would be plenty of references in
is Journal of Tissue CulTure Methods.  The best way to learn of course
is to watch some one do an isolation (unfortunately).
However, if I could isolate them, anyone can!
