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).
TUMOR: leukemia, basophilic
DSMZ catalog code: ACC 147
Morphology: 1/4 adherent (epithelial-like cells), 3/4 in suspension (small round cells)
Description: rat basophilic leukemia this rat basophilic leukemia (RBL) cell line was established from chlorethylamine-treated rats; the cells were described to show marked variations in differentiation dependent on the growth rate and the cell cycle phases confirmed as rat with IEF of AST, NP
Viruses: ELISA. reverse transcriptase negative
Depositor: obtained from ATCC (CRL 1378), Rockville, Maryland, USA
Available in the following LABORATORY:
German Collection of Microorganisms and Cell Cultures (DSMZ, Braunschweig)
90% RPMI 1640 + 10% FBS (cells may also be grown, but less efficiently, with MEM) maximal split ratio of 1:4; cells grow partly adherent, but trypsin is not needed to detach the cells at 37C with 5% CO2 about 46 x 106 cells/175 cm 2;
doubling time of ca. 25 hours;
frozen with 70% medium, 20% FBS, 10% DMSO at about 5 x 106 cells/ampoule;
negative in DAPI, microbiological culture, RNA hybridization assays;
Validated by: cytogenetics 1 (74(69-76); rodent marker chromosomes present) * DNA fingerprinting (unique Hinf I-(gtg)5 DNA profile) * isoenzymes (confirmed as rat with IEF of AST, NP)
Availability in cell line catalogues: ATCC: CRL 1378, ECACC: 86061001, ICLC: ATL01001
