Cellosaurus 2fTGH (CVCL_0115)

[Text version]
Cell line name 2fTGH
Synonyms 2FTGH; 2-fTGH
Accession CVCL_0115
Resource Identification Initiative To cite this cell line use: 2fTGH (RRID:CVCL_0115)
Comments Population: Caucasian.
Characteristics: 2fTGH was derived from a HPRT negative subline of HT-1080. Expression of gpt is under the control of a IFN-alpha inducible IFI6 (6-16) promoter and is thus only expressed when IFN-alpha is present in the growth medium.
Selected for resistance to: ChEBI; CHEBI:9555; Tioguanine (6-thioguanine; 6-TG).
Transfected with: UniProtKB; P0A9M5; Escherichia coli gpt.
Transfected with: UniProtKB; P00557; Escherichia coli hygromycin-B 4-O-kinase (hph) (HygR).
Derived from site: In situ; Bone, pelvis, acetabulum; UBERON=UBERON_0001269.
