huArlo Alveolar Epithelial Cells

This CI-huArlo Alveolar Epithelial Cell Line is an improved version of the CI-hAELVi Alveolar Epithelial Cell Line. It was derived from CI-hAELVi by single-cell printing and shows an overall improved alveolar phenotype, most notably a tigther barrier formation. The cells do adapt a proliferating AT-2-like phenotype in Air-Liquid-Interface cell culture. The cells were initially described in Carius et al., 2023 Adv Sci.
