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: bone marrow
TUMOR: leukemia, T cell
DSMZ catalog code: ACC 105
Morphology: spherical cells growing as clumps in suspension
Description: human T cell leukemia established from the bone marrow of a 2-year-old boy at diagnosis of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) prior to therapy in 1972; cells were reported as carrying the MLL-AFX and AFX-MLL fusion genes; retrospectively, the original diagnosis was T-ALL confirmed as human with IEF of AST, LDH, NP
Viruses: ELISA: reverse transcriptase negative; PCR: EBV-, HBV-, HCV-, HHV-8-, HIV-, HTLV-I/II-
Depositor: Dr. A. Karpas, MRC Centre, Cambridge, UK
