Abstract

We have devised a protocol for the cloning of our cell lines, and have demonstrated that a cloned line may contain cells of widely differing morphology - epithelial, fibroblast-like, and lamellocyte-like. These different morphologies must therefore represent diversity in the microenvironment of the culture rather than diversity in the cellular origin of the line.
