293AD Cell Line

Data sheet
Cell Category: Packaging Cell Lines
Organism: Human

Product Description

The Adenovirus 293AD cell line is derived from the parental 293 cell line, but specifically selected for adenovirus applications. It offers several advantages over the regular 293 cells:

  • Flattened morphology
  • Firm attachment to culture plate, ideal for amplification and titering of adenovirus
  • Larger cell surface area resulting higher transfection and better yield of recombinant adenovirus

The 293 Cell Line is a permanent line established from primary embryonic human kidney transformed with human adenovirus type 5 DNA. The genes encoded by the E1 region of adenovirus (E1a and E1b) are expressed in these cells and participate in transactivation of viral promoters, allowing these cells to produce high levels of protein. E1 also complements the E1-deletion in recombinant adenoviral vectors, allowing viral replication.


This cryovial contains at least 1.0 × 106 293AD cells as determined by morphology, trypan-blue dye exclusion, and viable cell count. The 293AD cells are tested free of microbial contamination.

STORAGE: Liquid nitrogen

QUANTITY AND CONCENTRATION: 1 mL, 1 x 106 cells/ml in 90% complete medium, 10% DMSO
