This cell line was derived from the bone marrow aspirate of a 59 year old male with erythroleukemia that became acute myelogenous leukaemia.The cells form colonies in soft-agar in the presence of colony stimulating factor (CSF). KG-1 cells resemble acute myelogenous leukaemia showing considerable pleomorphism with a predominance of myeloblasts and promyelocytes.
