Applications
This cell line is a suitable transfection host.
Storage Conditions liquid nitrogen vapor phase
Karyotype The stemline chromosome number is near-diploid, with the 2S component occurring at 1.8%. Five markers (constitutive markers) were common to most, if not all, metaphases analyzed. Modal chromosome number is 47 (or 46 plus a small metacentric chromosome which is smaller than the G1 group chromosome). Normal chromosomes 5, 7, 8, 12 and 17 were monosomic, and others were disomic. The Y chromosome is detected in the Q-banded preparations.
Derivation
The KG-1 cell line was derived by H.P. Koeffler and D.W. Golde. A bone marrow aspirate was obtained from a 59-year-old Caucasian male with erythroleukemia that evolved into acute myelogenous leukemia.

Comments
KG-1 myeloblasts can differentiate into macrophages in the presence of phorbol esters.
They show a good response to colony stimulating factor (CSF).
The line is EBNA negative (EBNA-).
Complete Growth Medium The base medium for this cell line is ATCC-formulated Iscove's Modified Dulbecco's Medium, Catalog No. 30-2005. To make the complete growth medium, add the following components to the base medium: fetal bovine serum to a final concentration of 20%.
Subculturing
Cultures can be maintained by the addition of fresh medium or replacement of medium. Alternatively, cultures can be established by centrifugation with subsequent resuspension at 2 x 105 viable cells/mL. Maintain cell density between 2 x 105 and 1 x 106 viable cells/mL. Do not allow to exceed 2 x 106 cells/mL.
Medium Renewal: Twice per week
Cryopreservation
Freeze medium: Complete growth medium supplemented with 5% (v/v) DMSO
