Cell Line Origin

Human cervix epitheloid carcinoma

Cell Line Description

Derived from a cervical carcinoma from a 31 year old female. This was the first aneuploid line derived from human tissue maintained in continuous cell culture. Susceptible to Poliovirus type I and adenovirus type 3. Identified as a contaminant in many other cell lines. The cells should be handled under laboratory containment level 2. Ethnicity: Black.


HeLa cell line has been used to study whether Zika virus (ZIKV) infection alters centrosome number and spindle positioning in neural progenitor cells. It has also been used to evaluate the cytotoxicity of extracts, fruits and jams from Sorbus sps.
