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).

Part of the Business Division of the Health Protection Agency (ECACC, Salisbury, Wiltshire)
RPMI 1640 + 2mM Glutamine + 0.05mM 2-Mercaptoethanol (2ME) + 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). Maintain cultures between 2-4 x 100,000 cells/ml; 5% CO2; 37C.
Karyotype: Near-tetraploid (8q+)
This IgA-producing cell line has been established from a malignant effusion in a 62-year-old Caucasian woman with myeloma. They are positive for plasma cell antigen 1 (PCA-1), transferrin receptor and CD38 but negative for early B cell developmental markers. HLA DR and CALLA. NCI-H929 is negative for Epstein-Barr virus nuclear antigen. A rearrangement of the c-myc proto-oncogene has been observed as well as the expression of c-myc RNA and an activated ras allele.
