Biosafety Level 1

Biosafety classification is based on U.S. Public Health Service Guidelines, it is the responsibility of the customer to ensure that their facilities comply with biosafety regulations for their own country.

Disease lymphoma
Strain DBA/2
Applications
The cells are resistant to X-rays, but sensitive to ultraviolet radiation, heat and some potential anti neoplastic drugs (e.
The X-ray sensitive L5178-S line (ATCC CRL-1723) was derived from this line.
Tested and found negative for ectromelia virus.
Derivation
This cell line was derived from the L5178 thymic lymphoma induced by methylcholanthrene in a DBA/2 mouse.
The X-ray sensitive L5178-S line (ATCC CRL-1723) was derived from this line.
Tumorigenic Yes
Effects
Yes, in DBA/2 mice
Comments
The cells are resistant to X-rays, but sensitive to ultraviolet radiation, heat and some potential anti neoplastic drugs (e.g., cis-PAD).
After 6 months to 3 years in culture, the line converts to an X-ray sensitive state.
Tested and found negative for ectromelia virus.
