HuH-7 Cell Line (Human)

Product Name: Human Huh-7 Cell Line

Catalogue No.: 116039

Description: The HuH-7 cell line was established in 1982 from a well differentiated hepatocyte derived cellular carcinoma cell line that was originally taken from a liver tumor in a 57-year-old Japanese male. Huh-7 is highly susceptible to the hepatitis C virus (HCV), and it is often used as a model to investigate hepatoma and HCV. Huh7 can be used for an HCV replicon system, which allows for an in vitro production of infectious HCV particles and development of drugs that combat HCV.

Type: Human Hepatocellular Carcinoma cell line

Source: Human liver tissue

Amount: 1e6 cells/vial in a frozen vial or about 5x 1e6 cells in a T25 flask.

Format: Provided as a frozen vial in our freeze media or as actively growing culture in a T25 flask.
