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).
TUMOR: lymphoma, Burkitt
ECACC catalog code: 85030802
Description: Human Caucasian Burkitt's lymphoma
Viruses: See Properties
Depositor: Prof M A Epstein/Dr S Finerty, Department of Pathology, University of Bristol, UK
No restrictions. Patent: None Specified By Depositor
Properties: Applications: Tumourigenicity and virus studies: EBV
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 3-9x100,000 cells/ml; 5% CO2; 37C.
Karyotype: Modal No 45
Derived from a Burkitt's lymphoma which does not possess the EBV genome. EBV infectability and permanent conversion into EBV positive sub-lines is possible by in vitro infection. The cells have B lymphocyte characteristics, with surface associated mu and kappa chains.
