Establishment and Evaluation of a Stable Cattle Type II Alveolar Epithelial Cell Line

Abstract

Macrophages and dendritic cells are recognized as key players in the defense against mycobacterial infection. Recent research has confirmed that alveolar epithelial cells (AECs) also play important roles against mycobacterium infections. Thus, establishing a stable cattle AEC line for future endogenous immune research on bacterial invasion is necessary. In… (More)
