We describe a coculture model of a human intestinal epithelial cell line and human peripheral blood monocytes in which monocytes differentiate into cells with features of resident intestinal macrophages. Caco-2 cells are grown on the lower surface of a semipermeable filter with pore size of 3μm (Transwells®) until they differentiate into enterocytes. Peripheral-blood monocytes are added and the co-culture incubated for two days. Monocytes migrate through the pores of the membrane, come into...[Show more]
