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).

BT-B (human, Caucasian, cervix, carcinoma)

SPECIES: human, Caucasian
TUMOR: carcinoma

DSMZ catalog code: ACC 227
Morphology: epitheloid cells growing adherently in monolayers
Description: human cervix carcinoma (derivative of HELA) these cells were thought to be 'stablished from the malignant urinary bladder carcinoma of a 66-year-old Caucasian man (stage pTa G3) in 1989'; same donor as for cell line BT-A; however, DNA fingerprinting and cytogenetic analysis at the DSMZ established unequivocally that this cell line must be considered de facto a subclone of HELA confirmed as human with IEF of AST, NP, PEP B
Viruses: ELISA: reverse transcriptase negative; PCR: EBV-, HBV-, HCV-, HIV-, HTLV-I/II-
Depositor: Prof. A. J. Ulmer, Forschungsinstitut Borstel, Borstel, Germany
