Human Immortalized Fibroblasts (SV40).
SV40: Simian virus 40 (SV40) T antigen has been shown to be the simplest and most reliable agent for the immortalization of many different cell types and the mechanism of SV40 T antigen in cell immortalization is relatively well understood. Recent studies have also shown that SV40 T antigen can induce Telomerase activity in the infected cells. Here the human fibroblasts were immortalized by introducing SV40 T antigen.
