Cell Line Origin

Human Burkitt′s lymphoma

Cell Line Description

Established in 1963 from Burkitt′s lymphoma in an 11 year old male. Growth is in the form of single cells without attachment and as macroscopically visible clumps containing many hundreds of cells. Resistant to VSV. This cell line carries the latent Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV) genome and is positive for EBNA. RAJI is sometimes referred to as a ′non-producer′; the EBV genome carries deletions attributed to preventing the formation of virus particles. Ethnicity: Black.


Resistance and virus studies: vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV).
RAJI Cell Line human has been used to investigate the transport of V. parahaemolyticus across the Payer′s patch of the intestinal epithelium and it has been co-cultured with Caco-2 (human colorectal adenocarcinoma cell-line) monolayers to study bacterial translocation.
