Rapidly Growing Immortal Chicken Embryo Fibroblast Cell Line (WK-1)

WK-1 is an immortalized chicken embryo fibroblast cell line. It demonstrates very rapid growth and is non-tumorigenic. It can be used for the investigation of avian cellular mechanisms related to cell proliferation and for possible virus propagation. It can also serve as a model for characterizing endogenous growth stimulating growth factors.
