JK1 Passage-Independent Feeder Cells

JK1 is capable of promoting long term culture of primitive cells, allowing for the identification of stromal derived factors that support long term proliferation of various types of stem cells. This line can be passaged serially without losing its capacity to support stem cell self renewal and survival, making it a convenient alternative to other types of feeder layers.
