Cellosaurus Walvax-2 (CVCL_5J50)

[Text version]

Cell line name Walvax-2
Synonyms WALVAX-2; WALVAX 2; Walvax 2; WALVAX2; Walvax2
Accession CVCL_5J50
Resource Identification Initiative To cite this cell line use: Walvax-2 (RRID:CVCL_5J50)
Comments Group: Vaccine production cell line.
Registration: International Depositary Authority, China Center for Type Culture Collection (CCTCC); C201055.
Characteristics: Maintains excellent capabilities for growth and proliferation until PDL 50 (max PDL is 58).
Doubling time: 39-41 hours (at 28th passage), 40-42 hours (at 38th passage), 57-62 hours (at 48th passage) (PubMed=25803132).
Anecdotal: Is causing an outrage in some pro-lifer circles because it is a cell line originating from an aborted (for medical reasons) 3-month old female fetus.
