What are lyoma cells? The only place I found this word is in a paper about electropermeabilization from Neumann, but I googled the word and cannot find anything else about it.
L cells are not that popular, especially for expressing G protein-coupled receptors, compared to CHO and HEK293 cells (for stable DNA transfections) or COS7 and HEK293 cells (for transient DNA transfections). They don't appear to have all the 'bells and whistles" that other cell lines might have to express some exogenous DNAs.
