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).

Part of the Business Division of the Health Protection Agency (ECACC, Salisbury, Wiltshire)
IDMEM + 2mM Glutamine + 20% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). Maintain cultures between 3-9x100,000 cells/ml; 5% CO2; 37C.
Karyotype: 2n = 46, diploid
Derived from the bone marrow aspirate of a 59 year old male Caucasian with erythroleukemia that became acute myelogenous leukaemia. The cells form colonies in soft-agar in the presence of colony stimulating factor (CSF). KG-1 cells resemble acute myelogenous leukaemia showing considerable pleomorphism with a predominance of myeloblasts and promyelocytes. A small percentage of the cells are mature granulocytes with the occasional presence of macrophages and eosinophils. They do not express surface Ig or EBV antigens and lack specific markers for lymphocytic cells.
Research council deposit: No;
Price Code: B;
Validated by: isoenzymes (species confirmation)
