Adult Mouse Pituitary Cell Line mPitA-5
24 phenotypically different cell lines designated mPitA-xx (Cat# CLU401-CLU425)
This line of adult mouse pituitary cell lines is based on a proprietary platform technology which has enabled the creation of 19 mixed cell cultures that contain cells from particular pituitary cell lineages, as determined by RT-PCR analysis and immunocytochemistry for specific hormones. Pituitary cell cultures have been immortalized from fully differentiated adult mouse pituitary cell culture (C57Bl/6; female) by retroviral transfer of SV40 T-Ag.
The pituitary cell lines are easy to culture and have robust gene and protein expression. As such, these adult-derived pituitary cell lines enable accurate assays for use in studies of progenitor cell characteristics and modulation, and the molecular analysis of hormone synthesis and secretion in differentiated cell lines.
