Sertoli cells are important for maintenance of the immune privileged environment of the testis and prolong survival of cotransplanted cells. The objective of the current study was to examine the immunoprotective properties of a mouse Sertoli cell line (MSC-1) in order to identify a Sertoli cell line that could be used to aid in investigation of the immunoprotective abilities of Sertoli cells. BALB/c islets were cotransplanted with 0-9 million primary BALB/c Sertoli cells or MSC-1 cells into… CONTINUE READING
