Other Notes

Cultures from HPA Culture Collections and supplied by Sigma are for research purposes only. Enquiries regarding the commercial use of a cell line are referred to the depositor of the cell line. Some cell lines have additional special release conditions such as the requirement for a material transfer agreement to be completed by the potential recipient prior to the supply of the cell line. Please view the Terms & Conditions of Supply for more information.


Tumourigenicity and virus studies: Epstein-Barr virus (EBV).
RAMOS Cell Line human has been used to carry out a MTT (colorimetric assay) cell viability assay to measure calcium ionophore-induced cell death in Ramos cells under different conditions and to determine the expression of ZFP36 ring finger protein like 1 (ZFP36L1) in Ramos B cells during different stages of B cell differentiation.
