Abstract

The origin of lymphoblastoid cells in long-term leukocyte suspension cultures remains unclear despite the fact that since the first report of Iwakata et al. (1) and Moore et al. (2) a great number of lymphoblastoid lines have been derived. With the aim of contributing to the clarification of this problem a study was conducted of five long-term suspension cultures of leukocytes established in our laboratory from different material. These lines are designated LAHL 1, 3, 4, 5, 6 and have been examined by means of cytochemical methods used in hematology, by cytogenetic methods and by 3H-thymidine autoradiography.
