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).

Available in the following LABORATORY:
Part of the Business Division of the Health Protection Agency (ECACC, Salisbury, Wiltshire)
EMEM (EBSS) + 2mM Glutamine + 1% Non Essential Amino Acids (NEAA) + 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). Split confluent cultures 1:3 to 1:10 i.e. seeding at 1.3x10,000 cells/cm2 using 0.25% trypsin/EDTA; 5% CO2; 37C.
Karyotype: 2n = 46, aneuploid
Derived from a cervical carcinoma from a 31 year old Negro. This was the first aneuploid line derived from human tissue maintained in continuous cell culture. Susceptible to Poliovirus type I and adenovirus type 3. Identified as a contaminant in many other cell lines. The cells should be handled under laboratory containment level 2.
Research council deposit: No;
Price Code: A;
Validated by: isoenzymes (species confirmation)
