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).
TISSUE/ORGAN: peripheral blood
TUMOR: leukemia, chronic myeloid
DSMZ catalog code: ACC 86
Morphology: round, large, single cells in suspension
Description: human chronic myeloid leukemia in blast crisis (derivative of K-562) allegedly derived 'from the peripheral blood of a 10-year-old girl with T-ALL in relapse in 1980'; but DNA fingerprinting showed cross-contamination with K-562; K-562 was established from the pleural effusion of a 53-year-old woman with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) in blast crisis in 1970; SPI-801 cells express and produce hemoglobins (quantitatively and qualitatively different from those of K-562 cells) confirmed as human with IEF of AST, MDH, NP
Viruses: ELISA: reverse transcriptase negative; PCR: EBV-, HBV-, HCV-, HHV-8-, HIV-, HTLV-I/II-
Depositor: Dr. J. Minowada, Fujisaki Cell Center, Okayama, Japan
Available in the following LABORATORY:
German Collection of Microorganisms and Cell Cultures (DSMZ, Braunschweig)
90-95% RPMI 1640 + 5-10% FBS maintain at 0.5-1.0 x 106 cells/ml at 37C with 5% CO2 maximal density at about 1.2 x 106 cells/ml;
frozen with 70% medium, 20% FBS, 10% DMSO at about 5 x 106 cells/ampoule;
contamination was eliminated with Mycoplasma Removal Agent, then negative in DAPI, microbiological culture, RNA hybridization assays;
Validated by: DNA fingerprinting (same Hinf I-(gtg)5 DNA profile as K-562) * immunological analysis (CD3- CD13+ CD19- glycophorin A+) * isoenzymes (confirmed as human with IEF of AST, MDH, NP)
