Cell Description: Human gastric carcinoma; stomach; pleural effusion; from metastatic site: supraclavicular and acillary lymph nodes and Douglas cul-de-sac
Growth Properties: Suspension/monolayer
Karyotype: The stemline chromosome number is hypotetraploid with the 2S component occurring at 6,2%. Nine markers were common to most S metaphses, four markers were less frequent. One (occasionally 2 copies) homogenous staining region (HSR) t(11;HSR) was present in all metaphases examined, but no double minutes (DM) were detected.
Isoenzymes: PGM3, 1; PGM1, 1; ES-D, 1; GLO-1, 2; G6PD, B; Phenotype Frequency Product: 0.0742
AntigenExp: Blood Type B; Rh+
Tumorigenic: Yes; in cheek pouches of anty thymocyte serum treated hamsters; not tumorigenic in nude mice.
Comments: From a 55-year old oriantal male.
Sterility: Tests for Mycoplasma, bacteria and fungi were negative
Biosafety Level: 1
ATCC number: HTB-103
