Establishment of a new human lymphoma line that secretes plasminogen activator

Jpn J Cancer Res. 1985 Jan;76(1):12-5.


A new cell line, designated RC-K8, was established from the peritoneal effusion of a patient with histiocytic lymphoma. The RC-K8 had human male karyotype with 14q+ and was found to have B-cell (B1) and monocyte/macrophage (intracytoplasmic alpha subunit of S-100 protein) markers. A fibrin plate method demonstrated that RC-K8 cells release plasminogen activator in culture.
