Hy Bill,

how about any transformed lymphocyte T-cell line? As I remember  
lymphocytes grow very well in L15 media (supplemented with HEPES,  
glutamine, penicilline/streptomycine, and fetal calf serum) without any  
CO2-incubation. Concerning to the cell line lymphocytes grow rather rapid  
(the cell lines I have once worked with - long ago- doubled cell count  
within 1 to 2 days).

Hope I could help,
Heike Beschmann
