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: mouse myeloma SP2/0-AG14 is a hybrid between BALB/c spleen cells and the myeloma cell line P3X63AG8; cells were described as not synthesizing or secreting immunoglobulin chains, being resistant to azaguanine at 20 ęg/ml, and not growing in HAT medium; cell line is used as a fusion partner for the production of hybridomas secreting specific monoclonal antibodies confirmed as mouse with IEF of LDH, NP, PEP B
Viruses: ELISA: reverse transcriptase positive
