The cells synthesize and release several proteins into the culture medium, including a 70 kDa protein recognized by anti-bovine serum albumin IgG.
A culture submitted to the ATCC in August of 2001 was found to be contaminated with mycoplasma. Progeny were cured by a 21-day treatment with BM Cycline.
The cells were assayed for mycoplasma, by the Hoechst stain, PCR and the standard culture test, after a six-week period following treatment. All tests were negative.
The dioxin, TCDD, induces one or possibly two forms of cytochrome P450 immunochemically and functionally related to rainbow trout P4501A1.
ZFL cell homogenates exhibit alanine and aspartate aminotransferase, glucose-6-phosphatase and alkaline phosphatase enzyme activities.
