Confirmation Clinical summary/Case history
Species Oryctolagus cuniculus
Common Name rabbit
Remarks Clone LTSMC-3U. This culture is a clonal derivative of line LTSMC-3, AG10187, from a 6 month old male New Zealand White rabbit, initiated on 7/14/88 using cells released by protease/collagenase digestion. Cell morphology is epithelial-like. In vitro lifespan studies on this culture were halted at PDL 125. This culture may be immortal. The culture tested positive for alpha-smooth muscle actin (immunofluorescence assay).
