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: human, Caucasian
DSMZ catalog code: ACC 230
Morphology: epitheloid cells growing in monolayers
Description: human endometrium carcinoma established from the ascitic fluid of a 69-year-old Caucasian woman with endometrial carcinoma in relapse in 1985; cells were received at passage 91, frozen at DSMZ at passage 99 confirmed as human with IEF of AST, NP
