  4. Resource Description
    The BJ cell line has a long lifespan in comparison with other normal human fibroblast cell lines. A frozen ampule at population doubling 2.3 was received at the ATCC in April, 2000. These cells have a reported normal diploid karyotype at population doubling 61 but an abnormal karyotype at population doubling 82. They are telomerase negative. Cells from ATCC ampules have the capacity to proliferate to a maximum of 72 population doublings before the onset of senescence. <b>STR Profile: </b> Amelogenin: X,Y CSF1PO: 10,12 D13S317: 8,9 D16S539: 9,13 D5S818: 12 D7S820: 11,12 THO1: 7,8 TPOX: 10,11 vWA: 16,18
