Infection with the wild type SV40 virus was used to transform primary cultures of human tracheal gland serous (HTGS) cells. Over 80 different cell lines were obtained, but the majority had lost some of their epithelial and secretory features. However, one of these cell lines, MM-39, was shown to have conserved the physiologic characteristics of the genuine… (More)
