hTERT-Immortalized Cells - Unique Tools for Tissue-Relevant Research
CK Zhang, Scientist, ATCC Cell Systems (https://www.atcc.org/)

Thursday, November 1st 1:00 pm (EST)

ATCC hTERT immortalized cell lines represent a breakthrough in cell biology 
research that combines the in vivo nature of primary cells and the in vitro 
utility of continuous cell lines. Normal primary cells are difficult to 
isolate, often vary from lot to lot, and senesce after a few passages. 
Traditional cell lines, on the other hand, are genetically unstable and present 
inconsistent phenotypes over time. In this webinar, we are going to use an 
hTERT-immortalized Renal Proximal Tubular Epithelial Cell line (RPTEC/TERT1, 
CRL-4031) as an example to show how cell biologists can use the hTERT cell 
lines from ATCC as valuable tools for the studies of cell functions in vitro.


Please note this is not being put on by ASCCT, but I thought it might be of
