This is one of a number of cell lines derived from malignant gliomas (see also ATCC HTB-14 and ATCC HTB-16) by J. Ponten and associates from 1966 to 1969.
|Species:||Homo sapiens, human|
|Disease:||classified as grade IV as of 2007, glioblastoma; astrocytoma|
|Gender:||male，50 years， Caucasian|

|Antigen Expression:||Blood Type A, Rh+; HLA Aw24, A28, B12, Bw47|
|Tumor Formation:||Yes, in nude mice inoculated subcutaneously with 10(7) cells
(Tumors developed within 21 days at 100% frequency (5/5).)
|Comments:||NOTE: The two glioblastoma cell lines, U-118 MG (HTB-15) and U-138 MG (HTB-16), reportedly from different individuals have identical VNTR and similar STR patterns.
U-118 MG and U-138 MG are very similar cytogenetically and share at least six derivative marker chromosomes.
Mycoplasma contamination was eliminated in 1987 by treatment with BM-Cycline over a six week culture period.
