BSL Biology Glossary - Stem cell line

The term used to describe a particular strain (or family) of constantly-dividing stem cells. Each stem cell line has its own unique name, such as ‘Shef 1’ or ‘Nott 2’, and will have been derived from an initial starter (or parent) culture of isolated ES cells, iPS cells or tissue stem cells. See cell line.
