Cell Lines, Primary Cultures
Cell lines maintain their phenotype and their ability to proliferate indefinitely in laboratory cultures. Primary cell isolates are derived from fresh tissue explants and maintain their phenotypic characteristics and their growth capabilities for a limited period of time in cultures. Both cell lines and primary cultures can be stored frozen in liquid nitrogen and then cultured back in appropriate culture medium. These processes facilitate biological studies that are convenient, reproducible, and cost effective. Cell lines are used for assay development/validation. Cell lines therefore allow studies that may be difficult with whole organs or in vivo, such as mechanism of action, radioactive experiments, or cell transfection. Cell lines with desired properties are obtained from repositories such as the American Type Culture Collection.
