Sponge cell culture: a comparative evaluation of adhesion to a native tissue extract and other culture substrates.


Hexactinellids are deep water sponges that possess syncytial rather than cellular tissues. In order to investigate the syncytial character of the tissue of these unusual sponges, primary cultures were developed using a substrate of acellular tissue extract (ATE) that promotes the adhesion and spreading of sponge tissues. Primary cultures of the… (More)
