Organism Type Human The KG-1 cell line was derived by H.P. Koeffler and D.W. Golde. A bone marrow aspirate was obtained from a 59-year-old Caucasian male with erythroleukemia that evolved into acute myelogenous leukemia. KG-1 cells spontaneously differentiate to granulocyte and macrophage like cells. They show a good response to colony stimulating factor (CSF). The line is EBNA negative (EBNA-).
