Cell Line Origin

Cat brain Moloney sarcoma virus-transformed

Cell Line Description

PG-4 was derived at NIH in 1980 from G355 cells by transformation with Moloney Murine sarcoma virus (M-MST) and subsequently cloned. Support the growth of simian sarcoma associated virus (SSAV); macaque virus; feline immunodeficiency virus (FeLV) A, B and C; feline RD-114; C retroviruses; murine xenotropic and munk cell focus-inducing virus (MCF).

Application

Cells can be used to detect and assay type C retroviruses and are currently recommended by the FDA for the detection of replication competent retroviruses in gene therapy products and hybridomas producing reagents for human use.
