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
TISSUE/ORGAN: bone marrow
TUMOR: leukemia, chronic myeloid
DSMZ catalog code: ACC 135
Morphology: single, round to oval cells in suspension
Description: human chronic myeloid leukemia in blast crisis established from the bone marrow of a 5-year-old Caucasian girl with Philadelphia-chromosome positive chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) in second relapse in 1980 (after bone marrow transplantation day +28); sister cell line of EM-3 (DSM ACC 134) confirmed as human with IEF of AST, MDH, NP
Viruses: ELISA: reverse transcriptase negative; PCR: EBV-, HBV-, HCV-, HHV-8-, HIV-, HTLV-I/II-
Depositor: Dr. A. Keating, Toronto General Hospital, Ontario, Canada

Validated by: cytogenetics 1 (hypertriploid karyotype with hypotetraploid sideline; 74(70-86)<3n>X,-X,-X, +3, +4, +6, +6, +6, +8, -9, +11, -14, -14, +15, +17, -19, +21, +22, +mar, der(5)t(5;?)(q13/15;?), der(9)t(9;22)(q34;q11), i(17q)x2; in some cells up to tree) * cytogenetics 2 (copies of der(9) are present; the karyotype overlaps that of EM-3 (DSM ACC 134) and corresponds with those reported for both EM-2 and EM-3) * DNA fingerprinting (unique Hinf I-(gtg)5 DNA profile, but similar to EM-3) * immunological analysis (CD3+ CD13+ CD14+ CD15+ CD19- CD33+) * isoenzymes (confirmed as human with IEF of AST, MDH, NP) * reverse transcriptase (reverse transcriptase negative)
