[Text version]
Cell line name MGC-803/PTX
Synonyms MGC803/PTX
Accession CVCL_VG42
Resource Identification Initiative To cite this cell line use: MGC-803/PTX (RRID:CVCL_VG42)
Comments Problematic cell line: Possibly contaminated. Parent cell lines (MGC-803) seems to be a derivative of HeLa and another cell of unknown origin. The STR profile of MGC-803 is highly similar to that of HeLa yet shows some specific differences that suggest a possible hybrid cell line.
