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: kidney, embryonic
DSMZ catalog code: ACC 153
Morphology: fibroblast-like cells growing as monolayers
Susceptibility to viruses: bovine leukemia
