Co-culture of XENO-1 islets and HEK293 cells. Examination of PERV infectivity in Co-culture is demonstrated here where detection of PERV-pol mRNA in HEK-293 co-cultured with islets from xeno-1 animals by RT-PCR. M, 50 bp-DNA ladder; +, positive control, using DNA from HEK293 co-cultured with PK15; −, negative control, HEK293 cell cultured alone; co indicates HEK-293 cells co-cultured with XENO-1 islets.
