[Text version]

Cell line name HepG3
Accession CVCL_Y479
Resource Identification Initiative To cite this cell line use: HepG3 (RRID:CVCL_Y479)
Comments Miscellaneous: It is not clear if there is a single HepG3 cell line or many differents ones. The one described in PubMed=22912842 is is said to be a Hep-G2 'derived stable cell line containing an integrated wild-type DHBV head-to-tail unit-length genomic DNA dimer', but there seems to be old papers (like PubMed=1828229) using this cell line as if it was obtained from ATCC.
Sequence variations NRAS p.Gln61Leu (c.182A>T) (from parent cell line).
TERT c.228C>T (-124C>T); in promoter (from parent cell line).

Species of origin Homo sapiens (Human) (NCBI Taxonomy: 9606)
