Organism Type Mouse ATCC# CLR1642: Cell line established from the lung of a C57BL mouse bearing a tumor resulting from an implantation of primary Lewis lung carcinoma. The cells are resistant to 1,3-bis-(2-chloroethyl)-1-nitrosourea, but are sensitive to methotrexate. The cells are reported to be highly tumorigenic, but weakly metastatic in mice. The cells form multilayers in flasks without actually becoming confluent. Tested and found negative for ectromelia virus (mousepox).
