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).
TISSUE/ORGAN: peripheral blood
TUMOR: leukemia, chronic, B cell
DSMZ catalog code: ACC 67
Morphology: lymphoblastoid, round to polygonal, single or clustered cells in suspension
TRANSFORMED BY: Epstein-Barr
Description: human chronic B cell leukemia established from the peripheral blood of a 69-year-old woman with B-CLL (chronic lymphocytic leukemia) prior treatment by EBV-transformation in 1988; cells were described to be EBV+, CD5+ and to express mRNA of bcl-2, bcl-3 and c-myc confirmed as human with IEF of MDH, NP
Viruses: ELISA: reverse transcriptase negative; PCR: EBV+, HBV-, HCV-, HHV-8-, HIV-, HTLV-I/II-
