Murine embryonal carcinoma F9 cells, a tissue culture model for early embryonic development, do not produce interferon (IFN) in response to poly(I-C), as determined by an antiviral assay. RNase protection analyses were used to examine total RNA extracted from the cells for the presence of beta-IFN RNA. Whereas F9 cells differentiated in vitro with retinoic… CONTINUE READING
