Abstract

Isozyme patterns of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) in human cell lines derived from primary hepatomas were compared with those in HeLa cells. Some cell lines derived from primary hepatomas having type B G6PD showed one or two isozymes of LDH. On the other hand, HeLa cells having type A G6PD showed four LDH isozymes. These findings suggest that not only G6PD, but also LDH may be useful for the detection of HeLa cell contamination of a culture in some cases.
