Introduction of Insect Cells

Insect cells are a class of eukaryotic cells derived from insects. The earliest in vitro culture of insect tissues was Richard Goldschmidt, who used the sperm of the ancient silkworm moth Hyalophora cecropia for in vitro culture to observe the development of sperm in 1915. The in vitro culture of insect cells has received increasing attention. There are two reasons for this: First, as hosts express highly specific viruses, these viruses can cause insect epidemics but are harmless to humans, animals and plants, so they can be used as virus insecticides. Second, insect polyhedrosis viruses can express proteins at high levels, and their gene fragments can be used to construct recombinant viruses to efficiently express foreign genes and produce certain medicinal proteins. Scholars around the world have established more than 500 cell lines from more than 100 species of insects. Although many insect cell lines have been established, the most studied and applied so far are Spodoptera Frugiperda ovarian cell line Sf21 and its clone Sf9 and Trichop lusiani embryonic cell line BTI-Tn5B1-4.
