Abstract In the silkworm, Bombyx mori, three cell lines (S.P.C.Bm36, BM-N, and SES-BoMo-15A) have been established. These cell lines were already characterized, but genetic and physiologic data are rare. Furthermore, one of them, S.P.C.Bm36(Bm36) cell line in the currently available form, is not B. mori type. The original cell source of the BM-N(Bm) has not been determined. Thus, we tried to establish and characterize new cell lines of B. mori. An appropriate method to characterize the genome of the new cell lines and the previously established cell lines is blot hybridization with the gene probes proper to B. mori. It is a useful method for biochemical analysis.
