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).

IM-9 (human, lymphoblastoid B cell, multiple myeloma)

SPECIES: human
TISSUE/ORGAN: lymphoblastoid B cell
TUMOR: multiple myeloma

DSMZ catalog code: ACC 117
Morphology: lymphoblastoid, single or clumped cells in suspension
Description: human B-lymphoblastoid cells (from patient with multiple myeloma) established from the bone marrow of a woman with multiple myeloma in 1967; cells were described to synthesize IgG and to have receptors for insulin and calcitonin; cells express bcl-2 mRNA; cells appear to be rather 'EBV+ B-lymphoblastoid cells' than myeloma-derived cells (see also Pellat-Deceunynk et al., Blood 86: 4001-4002, 1995) confirmed as human with IEF of AST, MDH, NP, PEP B
Viruses: ELISA: reverse transcriptase negative; PCR: EBV+, HBV-, HCV-, HHV-8-, HIV-, HTLV-I/II-
Depositor: obtained from ATCC (CCL 159), Rockville, Maryland, USA
General Restrictions

Available in the following LABORATORY:

Availability in cell line catalogues: ATCC: CCL 159, ICLC: HTL99009, IZSBS: BS TCL 98
