Abstract :

Endothelial cells from mouse peripheral lymph nodes were immortalized by cationic liposome-mediated transfection using a plasmid construct containing both the gene coding for the large T antigen of simian virus 40 and a geneticin resistance gene suitable for selection. A cell line (HECa10) was isolated on the basis of its capacity to specifically bind fucoside carrying glycoconjugates ; these cells present the main characteristics of endothelial cells : production of angiotensin converting enzyme and of factor VIII-related antigen.
