Vero cell line

The vero cell line in a cell lineage used for cell culturing in labs. Culturing is the process of growing cells outside their natural environment but under controlled conditions. This lineage of cells was isolated from epithelial cells in the kidney of African Green Monkey. This is one of the most commonly used cell lines for molecular biology research. This cell line was recently used for culturing the UK strain of the SARS CoV 2 virus by National Institute of Virology, Pune.
