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).

Available in the following LABORATORY:

RPMI 1640 + 2mM glutamine + 10% FBS Maintain cultures between 3-9 x 100,000 cells per ml; 5% CO2; 37C
The clone 15 HL-60 has been derived from HL-60 cells (ECACC No. 98070106) that had been cultured at an elevated pH of 7.6 - 7.8 for 2 months. Clone 15 HL-60 was picked from soft agar being selected for the ability to differentiate to eosinophils after treatment with butyric acid. Although 80% of the cells will exhibit this differentiation pattern initially, reversion will occur during culture leading to a higher percentage reverting to neutrophilic differentiation. Expression of IL-5 receptors and eosinophil granule proteins has been found (eosinophil major basic protein (MBP), eosinophil peroxidase (EPO), eosinophilotactions protein (ECP) and eosinophil derived neurotoxin (EDN). In addition, chemotaxis to eosinophil specific eosinophilotactius has been described. This cell line has only been subject to preliminary quality control procedures. Authentication tests such as DNA fingerprinting will be performed only when this cell line is requested.
