Primary porcine respiratory epithelial cell models used in the PIGSs project to study host–pathobiont interactions in the respiratory tract: PCLS model.
NEWS
The PIGSs project aims to improve our current understanding of the interplay of commensals, pathobionts, and keystone pathogens in the respiratory tract. Studies to dissect these complex processes should be carried out in respective animal models,...

Primary porcine respiratory epithelial cell models used in the PIGSs project to study host–pathobiont interactions in the respiratory tract: ALI culture.
NEWS
There is a growing need for physiologically relevant models of the respiratory epithelium, but recreating these complex functions in vitro is a considerable challenge. In the PIGSs project, Air-Liquid-Interface (ALI) cultures from primary porcine ...
