HIV-1 MW959 gp140 secreting CHO Cells

A Chinese hamster ovary cell line that expresses a secreted form of the gp160 gene of an HIV isolated designated MW959. The gene is truncated near the carboxy terminus of the extracellular domain to facilitate secretion and is therefore designated "gp140". The cell line secretes the protein in a constitutive manner into the culture supernatant.
