IL-3 dependent murine pro B cell line; the precise origin of the cell line is unclear; however, performing May-Grünwald-Giemsa staining provides evidence that the cells are indeed from a lymphatic back ground. Cells were apparently not derived from BALB/c, but from C3H mouse. Direct publication is not available, but for related publications see references.
