C2C12 cell culture
C2C12 is a subclone murine skeletal muscle cell line derived from mouse myoblast cells (Blau et al., 1983) obtained from normal adult C3H leg muscle (Yaffe and Saxel, 1977). This cell line rapidly differentiates and produces extensive contracting myotubes that express characteristic muscle specific proteins.
