BC040 – The Rise and Fall of the THP-1 Cell Empire

Submitted by Brittnee Crane

This experiment was starting and monitoring a culture of THP-1 cells that could be treated with the intention of them turning into monocyte-derived macrophages. They were doing very well for quite some time, but they became infected with some sort of bacteria (is the thought). Some of the cells were still monocytic but some also were differentiated or in the process of doing so. The cells were collected from the cultures for future experimentation.
