ATCC Fish Cell Lines

Fish cell lines are used for diverse research applications. Torofugu rubripes (pufferfish) possess a small genome with little junk DNA, while Danio rerio (Zebrafish) have a nearly transparent body during early development and have been used to study toxicology, developmental biology, and specific gene function and signaling pathways. ATCC offers fish cell lines from a variety of tissue sources.
