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: lymphoma, T cell
DSMZ catalog code: ACC 31
Morphology: round to polygonal, growing singly or in small clusters in suspension
Description: human T cell lymphoma established from the peripheral blood of a 25-year-old man with T cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma in 1986; now classified as 'CD30+ anaplastic large cell lymphoma' (ALCL); cells carry the NPM-ALK fusion gene 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. Karpas, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK
Available in the following LABORATORY:
German Collection of Microorganisms and Cell Cultures (DSMZ, Braunschweig)
90% RPMI 1640 + 10% FBS maintain at 1.0-2.0 x 106 cells/ml; split 1:3 every 2-3 days; seed out at ca. 1 x 106 cells/ml at 37C with 5% CO2 maximal density of about 2-3 x 106 cells/ml;
doubling time of ca. 30 hours;
