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 + 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). Maintain cultures between 3-9x100,000 cells/ml; 5% CO2; 37C.
RPMI 8866 has been established from the peripheral blood of a 51-year-old American woman with chronic myelogenous leukaemia in May 1966. The B lymphoid cell line expresses a relatively high amount of calcitonin receptors, membrane bound Ig and soluble IgE-binding factor (Fc epsilon RII/CD23).
