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).

Description: Monkey Marmoset peripheral blood lymphocyte
Viruses: See Properties
Depositor: Prof H Harris/Dr R Sutherland, Sir William Dunn School of Pathology, Oxford, UK
No restrictions. Patent: None Specified By Depositor
Properties: Products: Epstein Barr Virus (EBV) Applications: Transformation studies
Available in the following LABORATORY:
Part of the Business Division of the Health Protection Agency (ECACC, Salisbury, Wiltshire)
RPMI 1640 + 2mM Glutamine + 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). Maintain cultures between 3-9x100,000 cells/ml. May need to use 0.25% trypsin or trypsin/EDTA; 5% CO2; 37C.
Releases high titres of transforming EBV. Thus it provides a source of EBV to establish continuous lymphocytic lines from human donors. The cells should be handled under laboratory containment level 2.
