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: mouse, BALB/c
TUMOR: leukemia, myelomonocytic
ECACC catalog code: 86013003
Description: Mouse BALB/c myelomonocyte
Viruses: See Properties
Depositor: Dr J Garland, Department of Immunology, University of Manchester, UK
No restrictions. Patent: None Specified By Depositor
Properties: Products: Interleukin 3 (IL-3) Applications: Tumourigenicity studies
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 1-5x100,000 cells/ml; 5% CO2; 37C.
Derived from a BALB/c mouse which has undergone mineral oil injections intended to induce plasma cell tumour development. The original tumour WEHI-3b showed many characteristics of human myelomonocytic leukaemia. The cells produce high levels of IL-3.
