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).

Available in the following LABORATORY:
Part of the Business Division of the Health Protection Agency (ECACC, Salisbury, Wiltshire)
RPMI 1640 + 2mM Glutamine + 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). Split confluent cultures 1:5 to 1:10 i.e. seeding at 2-4x100,000 by pipetting without the use of trypsin/EDTA. Allow cells to settle, pipette into fresh media. Saturation density is reached at 4x1,000,000; 5% CO2; 37C.
Karyotype: Modal No 56-58, hyperdiploid
Derived from the bone marrow of a 55 year old male with chronic myelogenous leukaemia. All karyotypes show the Philadelphia chromosome. Platelet GP IIb/IIIa antigen is expressed on more than 92% of cells. Cytoplasmic expression of GP Ib antigen was not detected on the surface of cells but was present in the cytoplasm 20% of cells. BA-1 antigen is expressed in almost all cells. FVIII-related antigen was not detected on the surface cells but was present in cytoplasm.
