Cellosaurus IM-9-P (CVCL_B6CV)

[Text version]
Cell line name IM-9-P
Accession CVCL_B6CV
Resource Identification Initiative To cite this cell line use: IM-9-P (RRID:CVCL_B6CV)
Comments Problematic cell line: Misclassified. Parent cell line originally thought to be a myeloma cell line but is a B-lymphoblastoid cell line.
Population: Caucasian.
Characteristics: Produces prolactin. But after approximately 7 months in culture the capacity to synthesize prolactin is greatly reduced (PubMed=1366653; PubMed=2836165).
Transformant: NCBI_TaxID; 10376; Epstein-Barr virus (EBV).
Derived from site: In situ; Bone marrow; UBERON=UBERON_0002371.
