CC   Group: Vaccine production cell line.
CC   Part of: ENCODE project common cell types; tier 3.
CC   Biotechnology: Used for the production of the AstraZeneca SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) vaccine (Trade name: Vaxzevria; also known as ChAdOx1-SARS-COV-2 or AZD1222) (DrugBank; DB15656). In the context of the vaccine production, the tetR repressor blocks the expression of the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein gene during production of the recombinant adenoviral vector, thereby optimising vector production.
CC   Transfected with: UniProtKB; P04483; Escherichia coli Tn10 tetR.
CC   Transformant: NCBI_TaxID; 28285; Adenovirus 5.
CC   Derived from sampling site: Fetal kidney.
