  • Cat.No.
  • CSC-C0377
  • Description
  • This is one of a number of cell lines derived from malignant gliomas, e.g. U-87-MG, U-118-MG and U-373-MG isolated by J. Ponten and associates from 1966 to 1969. It differs from U-87-MG in morphology and it has a slower proliferation rate. U-138-MG shows strong similarity to U-118-MG, sharing at least six derivative marker chromosomes.

  • Karyotype
  • Hyperdiploid to pentaploid with several markers; the stemline chromosome number is near triploid with the 2S component occurring at 9.8%. Five markers [t(11;5), t(8q;4), t(19;?18), M1 and M2] were common to most S metaphases. One chromosome 4 could be found in every S metaphase. Chromosome composition was very uniform among cells.
