[Text version]
Cell line name BF24
Synonyms BF-24
Accession CVCL_X687
Resource Identification Initiative To cite this cell line use: BF24 (RRID:CVCL_X687)
Comments Population: Japanese.
Characteristics: Contains stably integrated, silent copies of the HIV-1 LTR promoter linked to the CAT gene (PubMed=2789383).
Virology: Sensitive indicator cell line for HIV-1 Tat. When infected by HIV-1, BF24 produces high levels of chloramphenicol acetyl transferase (CAT) (HIVReagentProgram=ARP-1296).
