HS-5 and HS27A cells - (Apr/04/2013 )

Hello, did anyone use HS-5 or HS-27A stromal cell lines in cultures?
do you have informations about these types of cells? how do they proliferate ? do they have a contact inhibiton pattern?
i need to know more about them...


Other than information from the ATCC website, which Bob already suggested to your HS-5 question, I don't know, but did you check out papers where they have been used ?
For instance I just googled for - HS-27A contact inhibition - and found this paper where it says that this line has no contact inhibition. Didn't find anything on possible contact inhibition of HS-5, though.
