Cellosaurus ART [Human OVCAR-8 contaminated cell line] (CVCL_B0CC)

[Text version]
Cell line name ART [Human OVCAR-8 contaminated cell line]
Accession CVCL_B0CC
Resource Identification Initiative To cite this cell line use: ART [Human OVCAR-8 contaminated cell line] (RRID:CVCL_B0CC)
Comments Problematic cell line: Contaminated. Parent cell line (NCI-ADR-RES) has been shown to be a OVCAR-8 derivative.
Population: Caucasian.
Characteristics: Engineered to overexpress the SV40 large T antigen.
Virology: Can be used to evaluate the infectious entry of polyomaviruses (BKPyV, JCPyV, SV40, MCPyV) and human papillomaviruses. Pathogenic variants of the JCPyV virus previously believed to be non-infectious can infect this cell line (ATCC=CRL-3468).
Doubling time: ~34 hours (ATCC=CRL-3468).
Transfected with: UniProtKB; P03070; SV40 large T antigen.
Transfected with: UniProtKB; P00557; Escherichia coli hygromycin-B 4-O-kinase (hph) (HygR).
