Subcollection Human Variation
Quantity 0.050mg
Quantitation Method Please see our FAQ
Biopsy Source Peripheral vein
Cell Type B-Lymphocyte
Tissue Type Blood
Transformant Epstein-Barr Virus
Ethnicity PYGMY
Relation to Proband proband
Confirmation Diagnosis confirmation is not possible
Species Homo sapiens
Common Name Human
Remarks Line JK742; Biaka Pygmy from the village of Bagandu in the southwest corner of the Central African Republic; Aka speaking; likely to be somewhat admixed with neighboring non-Pygmy groups; adult; Yale-Stanford Collect; slow growing culture. This cell line may be monoclonal as indicated by the very high proportion of IgL lambda (99%) compared to total lgL expression determined by cDNA microarray (see PMID: 14583597).
IDENTIFICATION OF SPECIES OF ORIGIN Species of Origin Confirmed by Nucleoside Phosphorylase, Glucose-6-Phosphate Dehydrogenase, and Lactate Dehydrogenase Isoenzyme Electrophoresis
