Schwann cells cloned from rat sciatic nerve survive and display self-induced growth suppression, or undergo spontaneous apoptosis, on long-term serum-free subconfluent culture. Strain SCL4.1/F7 sustained the capacity to growth arrest for up to 40 generations. A soluble activity transmitted between neighbouring cells of this strain suppresses DNA synthesis(More)
Neonatal rat Schwann cells were cultured for several months with intermittent exposure to the mitogen, cholera toxin, and infrequent passaging to avoid premature transformation. A cell line SCL4.1/F7 was derived following the cloning of one of these long-term cultures by limiting dilution in liquid medium to select for cells capable of continuous(More)
