RCB4627 : KUP5  update : 2024/05/01
Comment from the depositorAn immortalized mouse Kupffer cell line established from C57BL/6 strain. The Kupffer cells were proliferated in the mixed primary culture of C57BL/6 adult mouse liver cells, then infected with a replication-deficient retroviral vector containing the human c-myc oncogene and neomycin resistance gene, isolated and selected with G418 (cloned by a limited dilution). No significant production of infectious viral particles from KUP5 cells was confirmed by bioassay using SC-1 cells.
