Immortalization and characterization of human myometrial cells from term-pregnant patients using a telomerase expression vector.

Abstract

An examination of cellular processes involved in myometrial function has been greatly assisted by the use of human myometrial cells in primary culture. However, these cells can be used only for several passages before they senesce, and responses to various agents change with time in culture. The use of transformed cells is limited, as they can be… (More)
