Hi Satya,

In the OWL file, the information that I see for this term is:
<rdf:Description rdf:ID="cell_culture_agent">
     <rdfs:comment rdf:datatype=" 
     >A cell_culture_agent is and machine, instrument, or device that  
is responsible for maintaining samples.</rdfs:comment>

Is this intended to be a class? In Protege 3.4.1 (Build 537), the  
first level of the hierarchy is displayed as in BioPortal.
