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).
ECACC catalog code: 93121518
TRANSFORMED BY: HTLV-1
Endogenous viruses: contains HTLV-1
Description: Human T cell
Viruses: See Properties
Depositor: Dr G Farrar, PHLS CAMR, Porton Down, Salisbury, UK
No restrictions. Patent: None Specified By Depositor
Properties: Products: Human T Lymphotrohpic Virus 1 (HTLV-1) Applications: Study of type C virus particles and growth of HIV
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). Maintain cultures between 2-9x100,000 cells/ml; 5% CO2; 37C.
Karyotype: 2n = 46
Derived from a 45 year old Japanese female with generalised lymphadenopathy and heptosplenomegaly (Adult T-cell Leukaemia) by co-culture of her peripheral leukocytes with male umbilical cord leukocytes. The cells carry HTLV-1 and support the growth of HIV. The cells should be handled under laboratory containment level 3 conditions.
