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, Black
TUMOR: carcinoma, epitheloid
ECACC catalog code: 87110901
Susceptibility to viruses: adenovirus 5 * poliovirus 1 * vesic. stomatitis (Indiana)
Description: Human Negroid cervix carcinoma
Viruses: See Properties
Depositor: Mr C B Morris, PHLS CAMR, Porton Down, Salisbury, UK
No restrictions. Patent: None Specified By Depositor
Properties: Applications: Tumourigenicity and virus studies: poliovirus 1 and Ad 3. Clonal analysis of mammalian cell populations
Available in the following LABORATORY:
Part of the Business Division of the Health Protection Agency (ECACC, Salisbury, Wiltshire)
SMEM + 2mM Glutamine + 1% Non Essential Amino Acids (NEAA) +10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS) or Hams F12 + 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). Maintain cultures between 3-9x100,000 cells/ml; 5% CO2; 37C.
Karyotype: Modal No 68
Derived from the parent HeLa cell line. The cells have been adapted to grow in suspension (spinner) culture and have the same virus susceptibility as the parent line. Very useful in the clonal analysis of mammalian cell populations relating to chromosomal variation, cell nutrition and plaque forming ability. The cells should be handled under laboratory containment level 2.
Research council deposit: No;
Price Code: B;
Validated by: isoenzymes (species confirmatio)
Availability in cell line catalogues: ATCC: CCL 2.2, ICLC: HTL95020
