A549 cells are adenocarcinomic human alveolar basal epithelial cells, and constitute a cell line that was first developed in 1972 by D. J. Giard, et al.
An antibody (Ab), also known as an immunoglobulin (Ig), is a large, Y-shaped protein produced mainly by plasma cells that is used by the immune system to neutralize pathogens such as pathogenic bacteria and viruses.
ATCC or the American Type Culture Collection is a nonprofit organization which collects, stores, and distributes standard reference microorganisms, cell lines and other materials for research and development.
B cells, also known as B lymphocytes, are a type of white blood cell of the lymphocyte subtype.
Biochemistry, sometimes called biological chemistry, is the study of chemical processes within and relating to living organisms.
Biotechnology is the broad area of science involving living systems and organisms to develop or make products, or "any technological application that uses biological systems, living organisms, or derivatives thereof, to make or modify products or processes for specific use" (UN Convention on Biological Diversity, Art. 2).
Cancer is a group of diseases involving abnormal cell growth with the potential to invade or spread to other parts of the body.
The cell (from Latin cella, meaning "small room") is the basic structural, functional, and biological unit of all known living organisms.
Cell biology (also called cytology, from the Greek κυτος, kytos, "vessel") is a branch of biology that studies the structure and function of the cell, the basic unit of life.
Cell Biology International is a peer-reviewed scientific journal published by Portland Press for the International Federation for Cell Biology.
The cell cycle or cell-division cycle is the series of events that take place in a cell leading to its division and duplication of its DNA (DNA replication) to produce two daughter cells.
Cellosaurus is an on-line knowledge resource on cell lines.
Cellular senescence is one phenomenon by which normal cells cease to divide.
Cervical cancer is a cancer arising from the cervix.
A chromosome (from Ancient Greek: χρωμόσωμα, chromosoma, chroma means colour, soma means body) is a DNA molecule with part or all of the genetic material (genome) of an organism.
A clone is a group of identical cells that share a common ancestry, meaning they are derived from the same cell.
A fibroblast is a type of biological cell that synthesizes the extracellular matrix and collagen, the structural framework (stroma) for animal tissues, and plays a critical role in wound healing.
Gene expression is the process by which information from a gene is used in the synthesis of a functional gene product.
Human embryonic kidney cells 293, also often referred to as HEK 293, HEK-293, 293 cells, or less precisely as HEK cells, are a specific cell line originally derived from human embryonic kidney cells grown in tissue culture.
HeLa (also Hela or hela) is a cell type in an immortal cell line used in scientific research.
Henrietta Lacks (born Loretta Pleasant; August 1, 1920 – October 4, 1951) Note: Some sources report her birthday as August 2, 1920, vs.
Hoechst stains are part of a family of blue fluorescent dyes used to stain DNA.
Humans (taxonomically Homo sapiens) are the only extant members of the subtribe Hominina.
Hybridoma technology is a method for producing large numbers of identical antibodies (also called monoclonal antibodies).
In vitro (meaning: in the glass) studies are performed with microorganisms, cells, or biological molecules outside their normal biological context.
Jurkat cells are an immortalized line of human T lymphocyte cells that are used to study acute T cell leukemia, T cell signaling, and the expression of various chemokine receptors susceptible to viral entry, particularly HIV.
The kidneys are two bean-shaped organs present in left and right sides of the body in vertebrates.
Scientists study the behaviour of isolated cells grown in the laboratory for insights into how cells function in the body in health and disease.
The lungs are the primary organs of the respiratory system in humans and many other animals including a few fish and some snails.
Mammals are the vertebrates within the class Mammalia (from Latin mamma "breast"), a clade of endothermic amniotes distinguished from reptiles (including birds) by the possession of a neocortex (a region of the brain), hair, three middle ear bones, and mammary glands.
Biomedical research (or experimental medicine) encompasses a wide array of research, extending from "basic research" (also called bench science or bench research), – involving fundamental scientific principles that may apply to a ''preclinical'' understanding – to clinical research, which involves studies of people who may be subjects in clinical trials.
Multicellular organisms are organisms that consist of more than one cell, in contrast to unicellular organisms.
Multiple myeloma, also known as plasma cell myeloma, is a cancer of plasma cells, a type of white blood cell normally responsible for producing antibodies.
Mutagenesis is a process by which the genetic information of an organism is changed, resulting in a mutation.
In biology, a mutation is the permanent alteration of the nucleotide sequence of the genome of an organism, virus, or extrachromosomal DNA or other genetic elements.
Nature Methods is a monthly peer-reviewed scientific journal covering new scientific techniques.
Proteins are large biomolecules, or macromolecules, consisting of one or more long chains of amino acid residues.
A somatic cell (from the Greek σῶμα sôma, meaning "body") or vegetal cell is any biological cell forming the body of an organism; that is, in a multicellular organism, any cell other than a gamete, germ cell, gametocyte or undifferentiated stem cell.
Stem cells are biological cells that can differentiate into other types of cells and can divide to produce more of the same type of stem cells.
A T cell, or T lymphocyte, is a type of lymphocyte (a subtype of white blood cell) that plays a central role in cell-mediated immunity.
Telomerase, also called terminal transferase, is a ribonucleoprotein that adds a species-dependent telomere repeat sequence to the 3' end of telomeres.
Toxicity is the degree to which a chemical substance or a particular mixture of substances can damage an organism.
Vero cells are a lineage of cells used in cell cultures.
3T3 cells come from a cell line established in 1962 by two scientists then at the Department of Pathology in the New York University School of Medicine, George Todaro and Howard Green.
