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, BALB/c
ECACC catalog code: 91031103
Susceptibility to viruses: vesic. stomatitis (Indiana)
Description: Mouse BALB/c myeloma
Viruses: See Properties
Depositor: Obtained from ATCC, USA
No restrictions. Patent: None Specified By Depositor
Properties: Products: Immunoglobulin G (IgG2b), half molecules, light chain dimers, free light chains Applications: Tumourigenicity studies
Available in the following LABORATORY:
Part of the Business Division of the Health Protection Agency (ECACC, Salisbury, Wiltshire)
DMEM + 2mM Glutamine + 20% Horse Serum (HS). Maintain cultures between 2-9x100,000 cells/ml; 5% CO2; 37C.
Karyotype: Modal No. 67-70
Established from the Merwin plasma cell tumour-II carried in BALB/c mice. Resembles the parent tumour in that they both produced fully assembled gamma globulin molecules (Ig G2b) as well as half molecules, light chain dimers and free light chains. The MPC-II produces 5-6 picograms of IgG2b per cell per minute.
Research council deposit: No;
Price Code: C;
Validated by: isoenzymes (species confirmation)
