Primary cultures from the marine sponge Xestospongia muta (Petrosiidae, Haplosclerida).

In the context of the investigations on the origin and in vitro production of bioactive compounds, primary cultures were developed from ectosomal and choanosomal cell suspensions from the sponge Xestospongia muta. Dissociated cells aggregated and reorganized into a striking reticulated network of cells, typical for X. muta. Moreover, in some cultures an… CONTINUE READING
