Keywords: Human lung, mucoepidermoid carcinoma
Cell Line Description: Derived from a cervical node metastasis of a pulmonary mucoepidermoid carcinoma from a 32 year old female. Cells retain mucoepidermoid characteristics in culture and support replication of Hepatitis B virus. Some of the cells contain numerous small mucin-containing granules and are L-DOPA decaroxylase negative. This cell line has been selected as a prototype for transfecting subgenome fragments into human cells for studying the role of HBV and its individual genes in the pathogenesis of viral hepatitis and liver cancer. The cells are mucicarmine positive and also stain positively for keratin and vimentin but negative for neurofilament triplet protein. Ethnicity: Black.

Biosafety Information: Unless specified otherwise, at the European Collection of Authenticated Cell Cultures (ECACC) we routinely handle all of our cell lines at containment level 2 in accordance with the ACDP guidelines. ACDP = Advisory Committee on Dangerous Pathogens (UK)
All cell cultures have the potential to carry as yet unidentified adventitious agents. It is the responsibility of the end user to ensure that their facilities comply with biosafety regulations for their own country.

ACDP Guidance: Biological agents: Managing the risks in laboratories and healthcare premises.

The Culture Collections represent deposits of cultures from world-wide sources. While every effort is made to ensure details distributed by Culture Collections are accurate, Culture Collections cannot be held responsible for any inaccuracies in the data supplied. References where quoted are mainly attributed to the establishment of the cell culture and not for any specific property of the cell line, therefore further references should be obtained regarding cell culture characteristics. Passage numbers where given act only as a guide and Culture Collections does not guarantee the passage number stated will be the passage number received by the customer.

Cultures supplied by Culture Collections are for research purposes only. Enquiries regarding the commercial use of a cell line are referred to the depositor of the cell line. Some cell lines have additional special release conditions such as the requirement for a material transfer agreement to be completed by the potential recipient prior to the supply of the cell line. Please view the Terms & Conditions of Supply for more information.
