Resource Identification Initiative To cite this cell line use: NCTC clone 929 (RRID:CVCL_0462)
Comments Group: Space-flown cell line (cellonaut).
Part of: Naval Biosciences Laboratory (NBL) collection (transferred to ATCC in 1982).
Virology: Not susceptible to infection by SARS coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) (COVID-19) (PubMed=33389257).
Doubling time: 28 hours (Note=From cell counting), 32 hours (Note=From absorbance) (DOI=10.5897/IJBMBR2013.0154); ~25 hours (CLS=400260); ~21-24 hours (DSMZ=ACC-2).
Omics: Deep quantitative proteome analysis.
Anecdotal: First established continuous cell line.
Miscellaneous: PubMed=23430347 has a different value for STR 6-4 (16) than that of NIST (17,18) due to a change in the marker motif (personal communication of Almeida J.L.).
