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).
ICLC catalog code: ATL98015
Continuous culture, grown as monolayer
SPECIES: mouse, Swiss albino
Original line: NIH/3T3
Transfected by: DNA from rat neuroblastoma B104 Back To Transfection WebPage
DEPOSITOR: Dr U. Pfeffer, Molecular Biology Dept IST at ABC, Genoa, Italy
Cell line available for distribution. For non-commercial investigative use only
PROPERTIES: the cells contain the transforming gene neu which induces synthesis of a tumor antigen of relative molecular mass 185,000 (p185), strongly associated with the presence of neuro/glioblastoma oncogenes. The neu oncogene bears homology to erb-B and the tumor antigen p185 is serologically related to the epidermal growth factor receptor
