Cell line nomenclature - suffixes ?
Posted 14 March 2013 - 01:35 PM
got a very basic question on cell line nomenclature. Do you know a list in the internet where the meanings of the cell line name suffixes are noted ? I know in HEK293T the "T" stands for the SV40 large T antigen, but I wondered whether in other cell lines the letter can have a different meaning. Or what does "MG" at the end of a line stand for ? I couldn't find the answer by googling (but maybe I looked in the wrong places, hence my asking if there's something like a list).
Il dort. Quoique le sort fût pour lui bien étrange,
Il vivait. Il mourut quand il n'eut plus son ange;
La chose simplement d'elle-même arriva,
Comme la nuit se fait lorsque le jour s'en va.
