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 / mouse
DSMZ catalog code: ACC 213
Morphology: single round cells, lightly adherent
Description: mouse hybridoma (anti-fiber/myosin) described as secreting a mouse monoclonal antibody (IgM) reacting with slow muscle fibers in rodent, chicken and human and with slow myosin heavy chain on Western blots; the cell line was established in 1985 by fusion of X63AG8.653 cells with spleen cells from a BALB/c mouse that had been immunized with human skeletal muscle myosin confirmed as mouse with IEF of AST, NP
Viruses: ELISA: reverse transcriptase positive
Depositor: Dr. S. M. Hughes, King's College, London, England
