Abstract Long term cell lines can be readily established at high frequency with PBLs from normal channel catfish. Depending upon the mode of stimulation, morphologically and functionally distinct catfish lymphoid cell lines resembling B cells, T cells and monocytes have been developed. These fish cell lines appear unique from their putative mammalian counterparts in that they are immortalized without the need for exogenous factors or overt attempts at transformation.
