CULTURED mammalian cells are finding increasing use as a basis for conducting physiological and biochemical investigation outside the organism. Insect cell lines have originated from primary explants of embryonic tissue or tissues from larval and pupal stages of the donor. Cells from primary explants of embryonic tissue from the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster; the mosquito, Aedes aegypti; leaf hoppers, Agallia constricta and A. quadripunctata; and cockroaches, Periplaneta americana and… 

Growth of Paenibacillus larvae, the causative agent of American foulbrood in honey bees and Bacillus popilliae, the causative agent of milky disease in beetle larvae in lepidopteran cell cultures

TNM-FH Lepidopteran insect cell culture medium containing 10% fetal bovine serum (FBS), while allowing limited vegetative growth of Paenibacillus larvae (wild-type strain), the causative agent of

The establishment of two cell lines from the insectspodoptera frugiperda (lepidoptera; noctuidae)

Serological studies showed that both cell lines have at least one antigen which also is common to tissue antigens from pupae of Spodoptera frugiperda, and both were adapted to hemolymph-free medium at the 6th passage.

Insect cells have been successfully cultured in vitro as continuous cell lines for over 35 years such that, for many insects, new cells lines can be routinely developed.

ESTABLISHMENT AND SOME CHARACTERISTICS OF A CONTINUOUS CELL LINE DERIVED FROM FAT BODYS OF THE CABBAGE ARMYWORM (LEPIDOPTERA, NOCTUIDAE)

Fat bodies from fully grown larvae of the cabbage armyworm, Mamestra brassicae, were cultivated in a synthetic medium, MGM–431, and the established cell line was designated as NIAS–MaBr–85, which requires few amino acids.

Establishment of a cell line from embryos of the cabbage looper,Trichoplusia ni (hubner)

SummaryA new cell line was developed from 3-d-old embryonated eggs of the cabbage looper,Trichoplusia ni, and has been designated IPLB-TN-R2. It contains a variety of morphological cell types,

Ao38, a new cell line from eggs of the black witch moth, Ascalapha odorata (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae), is permissive for AcMNPV infection and produces high levels of recombinant proteins

Ao38 cells represent a highly productive new insect cell line that will be useful for heterologous protein expression and other applications in biotechnology.

ESTABLISHMENT AND CHARACTERIZATION OF CONTINUOUS CELL LINES FROM PUPAL OVARIES OF THE CABBAGE ARMYWORM, MAMESTRA BRASSICAE (LEPIDOPTERA, NOCTUIDAE)

Three continuous cell lines were established from the ovaries of pharate adults of the cabbage armyworm, Mamestra brassicae, and were susceptible to Chilo iridescent virus, and the infected cultures maintained a carrier state for many passages.
