Generation of patient-derived pediatric pilocytic astrocytoma in-vitro models using SV40 large T: evaluation of a modeling workflow

ConclusionA subset of primary PA cultures can be converted into long-term cell lines using SV40-TAg depending on sample intrinsic (patient age) and extrinsic workflow-related (e.g. type of medium, successful transduction) parameters. Careful monitoring of sample-intrinsic and extrinsic factors optimizes the process.
