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 1:2 to 1:4 i.e. seeding at 4x10,000 cells/cm2 using 0.25% trypsin/EDTA; 5% CO2; 37C.
Karyotype: 2n = 30
A clone of the mink lung cell line Mv.1.Lu. Isolated leukaemia from a single cell of a focus produced in the monolayer after infection with Moloney murine sarcoma virus associated with the RD-114 helper leukaemia virus. Super infection with non-transforming leukaemia virus results in transformation and net amplification of sarcoma-specific RNA sequences.
