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: mouse, DBA
TUMOR: leukemia, lymphocytic
DSMZ catalog code: ACC 123
Morphology: single round, lymphoblast-like cells in suspension
Transformed by: Chemical Agent Back To Chemical Agents' WebPage
Description: mouse lymphocytic leukemia established from the methylcholanthrene-induced tumor in a DBA strain mouse (subline 212, 8-month-old female) in 1949; the cells were propagated by heterotransplantation into DBA/2 mice; an in-vitro suspension culture was first reported in 1966; cells are used for cytotoxicity studies confirmed as mouse with IEF of AST, MDH, NP, PEP B
Viruses: ELISA: reverse transcriptase positive
Depositor: obtained from ATCC (CCL 219), Rockville, Maryland, USA
