Previous studies on the underlying mechanism for porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV)-induced reproductive failure have been focused on the viral replication in the endothelial macrophages, and the susceptibility of porcine endometrial endothelial (PEE) cells to PRRSV has not yet been investigated. Therefore, in the present study we generated a PEE cell line by transfection of the primary cells with a SV40 large T antigen expression vector. The PEE cell line maintained the endothelial morphology with a significantly faster growth rate, shorter population doubling time and higher plating efficiency than the primary cells. The endothelial origination of the cell line was confirmed by detection of the endothelial cell-specific markers. The PEE cell line had been passed successively for 60 generations with an unlimited growth potential. To further characterize the PEE cell line, cells of different passages were infected with different PRRSV strains and analyzed for the viral antigen and replication. Overt cytopathic effect was observed from 36hours postinfection (HPI) and the viral antigen detected as early as 12 HPI. The infectious virus was recovered from the infected PEE cells with a titer higher than that in MARC-145 cells. Since the data presented indicate a high susceptibility of PEE cells to PRRSV, we conclude that the PEE cell line generated will be useful for growth of PRRSV and further studies on the underlying mechanism for PRRSV infection of PEE cells. The finding of the susceptibility of PEE cells to PRRSV may provide an alternative explanation for PRRSV-induced reproductive failure.
