Dear Lubomira,

I have experiance using MEL cells in my studies on the end stage of red 
cell differentiation.They do work, however,they require very stringent 
conditions for differentiation to occur. These contitions include the 
correct batch of BSA, growth media, and most of all cell clone. In 
addition if you wish to observe the end stage of differentiation you must 
grow them on fibronectin. Most of this work has been published a while ago 
by Patel and Lodish in the mid 80's. If you would like to continue you 
project with MEL cell I can send you my detailed protocols.
