Karyotypic information: Has lost chromosome Y; Derived from sampling site: Pleural effusion.
Omics: Deep antibody staining analysis; Omics: Deep exome analysis; Omics: Deep proteome analysis; Omics: Deep quantitative proteome analysis; Omics: Deep RNAseq analysis; Omics: DNA methylation analysis; Omics: Proteome analysis by 2D-DE/MS; Omics: SNP array analysis; Omics: Transcriptome analysis
Problematic cell line: Partially contaminated Some ATCC stocks were cross-contaminated by K-562 initially (PubMed=7759961). The problem was corrected and subsequent stocks have been confirmed to carry only U-937.
