CC   Problematic cell line: Misidentified/contaminated. Shown to be identical to MEL-Ho. This cell line was reported to be isogenic with LCL-Wei (Cellosaurus=CVCL_1869) but it does not have the same STR profile (PubMed=10508494; PubMed=20143388).
CC   Registration: International Cell Line Authentication Committee, Register of Misidentified Cell Lines; ICLAC-00145.
CC   Population: Caucasian.
CC   Misspelling: ME-WEI; Note=Occasionally.
CC   Derived from site: In situ; Skin; UBERON=UBERON_0002097.
