Cellosaurus HL-60/AR (CVCL_WR44)

[Text version]
Cell line name HL-60/AR
Accession CVCL_WR44
Resource Identification Initiative To cite this cell line use: HL-60/AR (RRID:CVCL_WR44)
Comments Group: Space-flown cell line (cellonaut).
Population: Caucasian.
Selected for resistance to: ChEBI; CHEBI:48120; Anthracycline.
Anecdotal: Have been flown in space on shuttle flight STS-67 to study the effect of microgravity on multidrug resistance (PubMed=9434637).
Caution: Not to be confused with HL60/AR (Cellosaurus=CVCL_WI27) which is an 5-azacytidine resistant subline of HL-60.
Derived from site: In situ; Peripheral blood; UBERON=UBERON_0000178.
