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).
TISSUE/ORGAN: lymphoblastoid B cell
TUMOR: leukemia, chronic myeloid
DSMZ catalog code: ACC 95
Morphology: polygonal cells, single or in clusters in suspension
Description: human B-lymphoblastoid cells (from patient with chronic myeloid leukemia in blast crisis) established from the peripheral blood of a 62-year-old man with Philadelphia-chromosome negative chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) in blast crisis in 1985; cells were described to be Ph-negative, bcr-abl-negative; cells appear to be rather a 'normal' B-lymphoblastoid cell line (B-LCL) confirmed as human with IEF of AST, MDH, NP
Viruses: ELISA: reverse transcriptase negative; PCR: EBV+, HBV-, HCV-, HHV-8-, HIV-, HTLV-I/II-
