Quick Reference

The culture of two distinct cell types in a single culture, often used as a strategy to enable cells to grow at low density, the second cell type serving as a feeder layer producing growth factors. The feeder cells can be macrophages or irradiated cells that will not proliferate. Coculture is, of course, a much more realistic model of the real environment in which cells proliferate in vivo.
