Supply of Leukemic Plasmacytoid Dendritic Cell Line: PMDC05
Our laboratory has established a human leukemic plasmacytoid dendritic cell line (PMDC05)*. This cell line expresses Toll-like receptors 7/9 and has unique abilities for both antigen-presenting and antigen-specific cytotoxic T cell proliferation. Cell culture of PMDC05 is simple and feeder cells are not required for maintenance and proliferation.
PMDC05 has never been deposited in cell banks and can only be obtained from Niigata University. To date, we have provided PMDC05 to various laboratories in Japan and overseas.
