    COVID-19 (SARS-COV-2) human knockout cell lines panel

  • Product overview

    A collection of 5 knockout cell lines to targets in the cell entry and cytokine storm pathways, in one kit for your convenience, with matching parental cell lines. For Research Use Only




    Included in this panel:


    ACE-2 knockout CACO-2 cell line (ab273731) (Unfortunately we are currently unable to provide the CACO-2 WT cell line. We would recommend using the ATCC CACO-2 WT)


    TMPRSS2 knockout Calu-3 cell line (ab273734) + recommended control (ab275465)


    CSF3 knockout K562 cell line (ab273740) + recommended control (ab275469)


    IL-6 knockout A549 cell line (ab273751) + recommended control (ab275463)

    ACE-2: SARS-COV-2 binds to ACE-2 receptor via spike protein to allow cell entry (Pubmed: 32015507)


    TMPRSS2: TMPRSS2 cleaves spike at the S2’ site and is shown to be essential for activation of SARS-COV-2 in Calu-3 cells through antisense-mediated knockdown of TMPRSS2 expression (doi:


    CSF3: upregulated in patients with severe COVID-19 symptoms. Found to be the most upregulated gene by SARS-COV-2 (Pubmed: 33551833)
