RK13 is a heteroploid cell line derived from trypsinized kidney cells of a 5-week-old rabbit, containing approximately 62 chromosomes. It has demonstrated susceptibility to various viruses, including pseudorabies virus, rabbitpox virus, myxomatose virus, vaccinia, EAV. Other viruses, like Simian adenovirus and rubella, have also been shown to induce cytopathic effects (CPE) in RK13 cells, indicating their susceptibility to these viral infections. Additionally, RK13 cells exhibit calreticulin on their surface, forming complex(es) with tumor necrosis factor receptor 1 (TNFR1) and TNFR-associated death domain (TRADD) protein.


Why choose RK13 from AcceGen?

RK13 cells are characterized by their high viability and quality, ensuring reliable experimental results. They are incubated under optimal conditions to maintain their stability. Moreover, these cells are sterile and regularly screened to be mycoplasma-free, ensuring the integrity of experiments. Additionally, RK13 cells are cryopreserved using advanced techniques, allowing for long-term storage and convenient access for future research.
