BHK cell

BHK cell

Baby hamster kidney cell. An established diploid cell line descended from a clone (Clone 13) isolated by Stoker and McPherson from a rapidly growing primary culture of newborn Syrian hamster kidney tissue. BHK-21 cells are susceptible to human adenovirus D, reovirus 3 and vesicular stomatitis virus, and used for transformation and transfection. BHK cells are often described as fibroblastic, but also smooth muscle-like in that they express the muscle intermediate filament protein desmin; widely used as a viral host in studies of oncogenic transformation and cell physiology.

The significant differences noted regarding the cytotoxicity of the synthesized compounds in both the experiment and control cells were supported by the ratio of the concentration that caused half of the BHK cell line to die to the concentration that caused a similar proportion of death in HCT-116 [50-52].
BHK cell expression showed that the transporter was located in the cell membrane.

In addition, multiple attempts to isolate this virus on various cell lines of eukaryotes (Vero E6, MDCK, CRFK, N2a, and BHK cells, primary fox kidney cells) failed because of the absence of cytopathic effects and viral replication by quantitative reverse transcription PCR, despite a high number of reads in the original sample.
Adaptation of Sindbis virus to BHK cells selects for use of heparan sulfate as an attachment receptor.
Because ITV does not produce cytopathic effects (CPE) in Vero cells, virus neutralization was conducted on BHK cells for both WNV and ITV by using WN-goose-98 and ITV (vaccine strain).
In BHK cells, a similar seroprevalence rate was observed, with titers ranging from 1:40 to 1:1,280 (3x1:40, 2x1:80, 1x1:160, 4x1:320, 3x1:640, 1x1:1280).
