This is the complete description of the cell line that you selected.
By clicking on a generic term (e.g., SPECIES) you will go to the corresponding index (e.g., index of species), while by clicking on a specific term (e.g., retinoblastoma) you will go to the list of corresponding cell lines (e.g., retionoblastoma cell lines).
SPECIES: human, Caucasian
DSMZ catalog code: ACC 231
Morphology: epitheloid, growing in clusters at first, then as monolayer
Description: human breast carcinoma established from the pleural effusion of a 50-year-old Caucasian woman with breast carcinoma (ductal type, histological grading II) in 1979; cells were received at passage 53, frozen at DSMZ at passage 56 confirmed as human with IEF of AST, MDH
Viruses: ELISA: reverse transcriptase negative; PCR: EBV-, HBV-, HCV-, HHV-8-, HIV-, HTLV-I/II-
