  • Dear Editor: In vitro culture of marine sponge cells is crucial for the commercial supply of novel, biologically active chemical compounds with high pharmacological potential (9,19,20). However, all attempts to develop long-term, continuous cell lines from marine sponges (9,13,14,19,20), have not been as rewarding and the methodology for the establishment of such cell lines is still in its preliminary stages (9,19,20,22). With respect to this outcome, embryo-derived cell lines may potentially… CONTINUE READING
