Tool Details

  • Tool name: 3.334 SC5/8 Cell Line
  • Tool type: Cell Lines
  • Tool sub-type: Continuous
  • Parental cell line: 3T3TK3 cells and normal rat kidney cells
  • Organism: Hybrid
  • Tissue: Fibroblast
  • Growth properties: Adherent
  • Model: Tumour line
  • Conditional: No
  • Description: Hybrid between un-transformed mouse 3T3TK3 cells and normal rat kidney cells transformed with RSV. The hybrid cells express a non-transformed phenotype. The cells exhibit anchorage-independent growth at 35C but not at 39.5C, the non-permissive temperature and showed differences in microfilament bundle formation at both temperatures.
  • Research area: Adhesion; Cell Structure and Motility
  • Cellosaurus ID: CVCL_7237
  • Additional notes: Rat x Mouse hybrid

  • For Research Use Only
