Established cell line

Established cell line --> cell line

(Science: cell culture) a cell line is a permanently established cell culture that will proliferate indefinitely given appropriate fresh medium and space.

lines differ from cell strains in that they have escaped the Hayflick limit and become immortalised. Some species, particularly rodents, give rise to lines relatively easily, whereas other species do not. No cell lines have been produced from avian tissues and the establishment of cell lines from human tissue is difficult. Many cell biologists would consider that a cell line is by definition already abnormal and that it is on the way towards becoming the culture equivalent of a neoplastic cell.
