Dear Editor: Aedes albopictus mosquito cells derived from the ATC-15 line of Singh (1967) have been extensively used in production of somatic cell mutants (Gerenday et al., 1997), expression of transfected genes (Fallon, 1989; Shotkoski and Fallon, 1994), and most recently, isolation and characterization of factors involved in the inducible immune response (Hernandez et al., 1994; Yoshiga et al., 1997). Although Ae. albopictus cells are often maintained in "insect" tissue culture media, such as… CONTINUE READING
