Cellosaurus SKW 6.4 (CVCL_3796)

[Text version]
Cell line name SKW 6.4
Synonyms SKW6.4; Skw6.4; SKW 6-4; SKW6-Cl4; SKW6-CL4; SKW6 clone 4; SKW6-4
Accession CVCL_3796
Resource Identification Initiative To cite this cell line use: SKW 6.4 (RRID:CVCL_3796)
Comments Problematic cell line: Contaminated. Shown to be a WIL2-A3 derivative (ICLAC). Based on the STR profile. The exact WIL2 derivative has been arbitrarily chosen to be WIL2-A3 because this cell line was used in the lab where SKW 6.4 was derived (PubMed=305004). Originally thought to originate from the Daudi cell line.
Part of: Tumor Immunology Bank (TIB) collection from Salk (transferred to ATCC in 1981).
Registration: International Cell Line Authentication Committee, Register of Misidentified Cell Lines; ICLAC-00617.
Population: Caucasian.
Characteristics: Produces and secretes IgM.
Transformant: NCBI_TaxID; 10376; Epstein-Barr virus (EBV).
Derived from site: In situ; Spleen; UBERON=UBERON_0002106.
