The MH-S cell line represents a continuous culture of murine alveolar macrophages (AM), initially derived from bronchoalveolar lavage cells of Balb/cJ mice via transformation with simian virus 40 (SV40). Characterized by their adhesion properties, lack of contact inhibition, and trypsin sensitivity, MH-S cells exhibit distinctive features. They express intracellular T-antigen and manifest DNA synthesis through the incorporation of 3H-thymidine, boasting a doubling time of approximately 48 hours, resulting in a doubling of cell numbers within 96 hours. MH-S cells maintain typical macrophage morphology, with over 98% esterase-positive cells, while being negative for peroxidase. They further express cell surface Ia and Mac-1 antigens and exhibit Fc receptor positivity, demonstrated by their capacity for rosette formation and phagocytosis of antibody-coated sheep erythrocytes. Importantly, akin to freshly isolated AM, MH-S cells display the ability to dose-dependently suppress the in vitro plaque-forming cell (PFC) response when co-cultured with splenic lymphocytes.

The MH-S cell line, characterized by its preservation of typical alveolar macrophage morphology, holds substantial promise for applications in immunology research. This cell line is particularly valuable in investigations requiring homogeneous populations of alveolar macrophages. It provides a robust platform for elucidating the immunological functions of alveolar macrophages and their potential contributions to lung pathology, offering a critical tool for advancing our understanding of lung-related diseases and immune responses in this context.
