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: human, Caucasian
TUMOR: lymphoma, histiocytic
ECACC catalog code: 95102435
Description: Human Caucasian histiocytic lymphoma
Viruses: See Properties
Depositor: Dr C W Van den Berg, Department of Medical Biochemistry, University of Wales, Cardiff, UK

Properties: Applications: Study of complement inhibition by CD59
Available in the following LABORATORY:
Part of the Business Division of the Health Protection Agency (ECACC, Salisbury, Wiltshire)
RPMI 1640 + 4mM Glutamine + 2mM Sodium Pyruvate (NaP) + 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). Maintain cultures between 2-9x100,000 cells/ml; 5% CO2; 37C.
The cell line CD59(+) was derived from the lymphoma cell line U937 (ECACC No. 85011440) by a single limited dilution step. Although the cells express CD59, mAb directed against CD59 did not enhance the killing of this cell line. Together with results from Western blot analysis these results indicate that CD59(+) cells express a dysfunctional and structurally abnormal form of CD59.
