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).
SPECIES: monkey, marmoset
TISSUE/ORGAN: lymphocyte B, peripheral
DSMZ catalog code: ACC 100
Morphology: single, round to oval cells or clustered in small clumps in suspension and partially adherent; ca. 10% adhere, but trypsin is not necessary to detach the cells
TRANSFORMED BY: Epstein-Barr
Endogenous viruses: contains Epstein-Barr
Description: marmoset monkey lymphocytes established from peripheral blood lymphocytes of a marmoset monkey (saguinus oedipus); cells were described to release high titers of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) providing a source for transformation of B cells and establishment of continuous cell lines; this cell line has been assigned by the ZKBS (German Central Commission for Biological Safety) to risk group 2 IEF analysis with LDH and NP confirmed the cells as non-human and non-murine
Viruses: ELISA: reverse transcriptase negative; PCR: EBV+, HBV-, HCV-, HIV-, HTLV-I/II-
Depositor: Prof. Dr. M. Hadam, Medical School of Hannover, Hannover, Germany
