Cellosaurus Pt K2 (CVCL_0514)

[Text version]
Cell line name Pt K2
Synonyms Pt K2 (NBL-5); NBL-5; Pt-K2; PTK-2; Ptk-2; PTK 2; PtK 2; PTK2; PtK2; Ptk2; Potorous tridactylus Kidney 2
Accession CVCL_0514
Resource Identification Initiative To cite this cell line use: Pt K2 (RRID:CVCL_0514)
Comments Group: Marsupial cell line.
Part of: Naval Biosciences Laboratory (NBL) collection (transferred to ATCC in 1982).
Karyotypic information: As the diploid chromosome number of P.tridactylus is quite small (2n=12), this cell line is suited to the study of mitosis and to easily visualize the chromosomes under a microscope.
Omics: Transcriptome analysis by RNAseq.
Derived from site: In situ; Kidney; UBERON=UBERON_0002113.
Species of origin Potorous tridactylus (Potoroo) (NCBI Taxonomy: 9310)
Hierarchy Children:
CVCL_JZ44 (M2.7.1)CVCL_JZ53 (PtK2BN1)CVCL_JZ54 (PtK2TN1)
Sex of cell Male
Age at sampling Adult
Category Spontaneously immortalized cell line
