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).
DSMZ catalog code: ACC 152
Morphology: epithelial-like cells growing in monolayers
Description: porcine normal kidney cells derived as a subclone from the cell line AM II which was established from a normal porcine kidney in 1983; cells have been used in assays to test toxins and mutagens
Viruses: ELISA. reverse transcriptase positive
