General description

AC16 Human Cardiomyocyte Cell Line is a proliferating cell line that was derived from the fusion of primary cells from adult human ventricular heart tissues with SV40 transformed, uridine auxotroph human fibroblasts, devoid of mitochondrial DNA . After selection in uridine-free medium to remove unfused fibroblasts, the resulting fused cells were further subcloned and subsequently screened for the presence of SV40 large T-ag, β-myosin heavy chain (βMHC) and connexin-43 (CX-43) .

AC16 cells are proliferating and differentiation of the cells may be controlled by altering culture conditions and by silencing the expression of SV40 T-Ag . The cells can be used to study cardiac gene expression and function, during normal development and in pathological conditions at the cellular, organellar and molecular levels.
