hTERT and SV40 early region immortalized human thymic epithelial cell line

The cells are characterized by unlimited growth while maintaining expression of cell type specific markers and functions such as:

  • Typical epithelial morphology
  • Expression of KRT5, KRT8, ZO-1 (as tested on protein level)
  • Expression of thymopoietin, prolactin receptor, growth hormone receptor, HOXA3 (as tested on RNA level)

Therefore, these cells are the only solution for gene editing using e.g. the CRISPR/Cas9 system when primary like characteristics are of importance.
