We have recently established, cloned, and propagated in vitro a primary long-term cell culture (FNC-B4) obtained from the human fetal olfactory neuroepithelium. In the present study, we show that different concentrations of cad…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
