Two monotreme cell lines, derived from female platypuses (Ornithorhynchus anatinus; Monotremata, mammalia)

Abstract

Two diploid platypus cell lines, designated Oa-1F and Oa-2F, have been derived from the toe webs of two females. The development and growth characteristics of the lines are described and G-banded karyotypes presented (the first reported for the platypus). The availability of these lines will greatly facilitate chromosome and gene mapping studies of the platypus and permit the extension of comparative studies of mammalian chromosome and genome evolution to the monotremes.
