Mouse submandibular gland (SMG) cells in culture rarely retain functional properties of SMG cells in vivo. We demonstrate that both primary SMG cells and the mouse SMG cell line SCA-9 secrete biologically active nerve growth factor (NGF). However, primary cells secrete 40-fold more NGF than SCA-9 cells, demonstrating that SCA-9 cells cannot substitute for primary SMG cells for the study of SMG NGF in vitro.
