This line KB is now known to be a subline of the ubiquitous KERATIN-forming tumor cell line HeLa. It was originally thought to be derived from an epidermal carcinoma of the mouth, but was subsequently found, based on isoenzyme analysis, HeLa marker chromosomes, and DNA fingerprinting, to have been established via contamination by HELA CELLS. The cells are positive for keratin by immunoperoxidase staining. KB cells have been reported to contain human papillomavirus18 (HPV-18) sequences.

Sample Sentences & Example Usage
Reading by itself is certainly not sufficient to breed wistfulness; a natural-born peculiarity of wisdom ought to exist in one's very brain cells, and reflected on his very deep beliefs and thoughts..

When an axon of cell A is near enough to excite cell B and repeatedly or persistently takes part in firing it, some growth process or metabolic change takes place in one or both cells such that A's efficiency, as one of the cells firing B, is increased
The electrical communication amongst cells is really important for tumor suppression. The bigger picture is to understand how these voltages are passed among cells and how they control the transfer of chemical signals among cells, we need to crack this bioelectrical code. We really need to figure out how computations in tissues and decision making about pattern and cell behavior and so on are encoded in electrical signaling. That is sort of the next ten years.
Traditionally people thought that cells didn't make it to the front of embryos to pigment the belly because they just weren't migrating fast enough, what we've been able to show through our studies is that actually, if anything, cells in piebald animals migrate faster but they're just not proliferating enough. They're not making enough daughter cells to colonize - or cover - the whole region of the skin that needs to be covered by the time the pigmentation pattern is set down.
