Cellosaurus LUHMES (CVCL_B056)

[Text version]

Cell line name LUHMES
Synonyms LUnd Human MESencephalic
Accession CVCL_B056
Resource Identification Initiative To cite this cell line use: LUHMES (RRID:CVCL_B056)
Comments Characteristics: Embryonic neuronal precursor cells that can be maintained as proliferating cells due to the expression of a tetracycline-regulatable (Tet-Off) v-myc transgene. Can be differentiated to post-mitotic neurons by the addition of tetracycline, GDNF and dibutyryl cAMP.
Transfected with: UniProtKB; P01110; Avian myelocytomatosis virus MC29 v-Myc.
Transformant: v-Myc.
Species of origin Homo sapiens (Human) (NCBI Taxonomy: 9606)
Hierarchy Parent: CVCL_B061 (MESC2.10)
Sex of cell Female
Age at sampling 8FW
Category Conditionally immortalized cell line
STR profile Source(s): ATCC
