Cell line: THP1 (Human acute monocytic leukemia).
Extracts have been quality control tested by Western blot and the Electrophoretic Mobility Shift Assay (EMSA).
To ensure stability, we recommend aliquoting the extracts into single-use fractions and then storing them at -80ºC.
Shipped on dry ice. Upon delivery aliquot and store at -80ºC. Avoid freeze / thaw cycles.
Properties: differentiation; lysozyme synthesis; phagocytosis; Fc receptor; IL-1 prod.; C3b receptor.
The cell line can differentiate into macrophage-like cells (phagocytic) and can be used for induction of differentiation studies. When stimulated with PMA cells have been reported to differentialte into a monocytic pathway and release arachidonic acid and prostanoids.
