KB (human, Caucasian, cervix, carcinoma)


SPECIES: human, Caucasian
TISSUE/ORGAN: cervix
TUMOR: carcinoma

DSMZ catalog code: ACC 136
Morphology: adherent cells, epithelial-like, growing as monolayers
Susceptibility to viruses: adenovirus 3 * herpes simplex * influenza * poliovirus 1 * vaccinia
Description: human cervix carcinoma (derivative of HELA) originally described as 'epidermoid carcinoma established from the mouth of a Caucasian man in 1954'; however, as shown by DSMZ DNA fingerprinting (see below) this cell line must be considered an HELA subclone (human cervix carcinoma, see HELA DSM ACC 57) confirmed as human with IEF of AST, MDH
Viruses: ELISA: reverse transcriptase negative; PCR: EBV-, HBV-, HCV-, HIV-, HTLV-I/II-
Depositor: Dr. J. Wehland, GBF, Braunschweig, Germany
General Restrictions
