Cell Line Origin

Human T cell lymphoblastic Lymphoma

Cell Line Description

Derived from a Malignant pleural effusion taken from an eight year old caucasian male with T cell lymphoblastic lymphoma. These cells are E-rosette, Leu 5, OKT9 and CALLA negative. They also express β2M, Leu 1, 2, 3a, 4, 6, 9 and OKT10 antigens and are CD4 positive. These cells are negative for Tac, HLA-DR and surface immunoglobulin.


Cells have been used for growth of HIV-1

SUP-T1 has been used in a study targeting B-cell neoplasia with T-cell receptors recognizing a cluster of differentiation 20 (CD20)-derived peptide on patient-specific human leucocyte antigen (HLA). Existing appl-SUP-T1 cells have been used for growth of HIV-1.

Culture Medium

RPMI 1640 + 2mM Glutamine + 10% Foetal Bovine Serum (FBS).

Subculture Routine

Maintain cultures between 2x100,000 to 2x1,000,000 cells/ml 5% CO2; 37°C.

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.
