Fibroblasts should be:

1) fibronectin, type I, III collagen positive
2) CD45, Fc receptor negative (lymphoid)
3) cytokeratin, factor VIII negative (epithelial, endothelial)
4) of fibroblast-like morphology (obvious, I know)
5) able to be passaged almost indefinitely (murine) or many times (human)
     without additional factors in ~10% FBS

If you tell me the source, I may be able to tell you more (I didn't read
the original posting).
