human (Homo sapiens)
established from a human primary embryonal kidney transformed by adenovirus type 5 (Ad 5); classified as risk category 1 according to the German Central Commission for Biological Safety (ZKBS) but not as GMO; cell line also known as HEK-293 (human embryonic kidney-293)
The cell line was established by transfection of the cells with sheared DNA of adenovirus type 5. The cells contain 4 to 5 copies of the left end of the virus (12% of the viral genome) including E1a and E1b genes and one copy of the right end of the virus (10% of the genome) including the E4 gene. No active viruses are produced. No GMO.
