A coleopteran cell line derived fromHeteronychus arator (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae)


The first continuous coleopteran cell line, designated DSIR-HA-1179, was derived from the scarab beetleHeteronychus arator. Most cells are spindle-shaped, 25 to 40 µm long and 15 to 20 µm wide, adhere strongly to plastic surfaces, and are highly resistant to trypsin and collagenase treatment. The population doubling time of 6 d, at 27° C, is slow compared… (More)
