COS cells

COS cells
Simian fibroblasts (CV-1 cells) transformed by SV40 that is deficient in the origin of replication region. Express large T-antigen constitutively and if transfected with a vector containing a normal SV40 origin have all the other early viral genes necessary to generate multiple copies of the vector and thus to give very high levels of expression.
