Cultured mouse myeloma cells grow in suspension and synthesize and secrete large amounts of immunoglobulin. Mouse myeloma cells which attach to a plastic substratum have been obtained by mutagenesis and subsequent selection. Normal mouse myeloma cells will also attach to plastic tissue culture dishes pre‐treated with poly‐L‐lysine. The attached cells synthesize and secrete the same large amounts of immunoglobulin as the suspended cells.
