Breslow JL, et al. Characterization of the mouse liver cell line FL83B. Exp. Cell Res. 78: 441-453, 1973. PubMed: 4572697
FL83B is a hepatocyte cell line derived in 1969 by Charity Waymouth at The Jackson Laboratory, Bar Harbor, Maine from a normal liver taken from a 15-17 day old fetal mouse. A culture submitted to the ATCC in May 1988was found to be contaminated with mycoplasma. Progeny were cured by a 21-day treatment with BM -Cycline. The cells were assayed for mycoplasma by the Hoechst stain, PCR and the standard culture test after a six-week period following treatment. All tests were negative.
