Cell Line Origin

Human leukaemic T cell lymphoblast

Cell Line Description

Derived from Jurkat FHCRC. An IL-2 producing cell line, derived by incubating the cells at 41°C for 48 hours followed by a limiting dilution cloning over macrophages.


IL-2 assay and cloning studies

Jurkat E6.1 cell line has been used to:
• study cell-independent/vector-free delivery of bovine serum albumin-fluorescein conjugate
• determine the cytotoxicity of the cytolethal distending toxin (CDT) holotoxin and its components
• study the expression of bisphenol A exposed estrogen receptor-β (ERβ) and estrogen-related-receptor-α (ERRα) in vitro
