Human valvular interstitial cells are derived from heart valves of a single donor and explanted in culture. These cells are positive for smooth muscle actin. These cells have enabled researchers to study the role of cardiac valves in vitro, their potential uses in various types of valve replacement, stimulus contraction, transplantation studies into normal or diseased systems, and tissue engineering applications
