Organism: Cricetulus griseus, hamster, Chinese  / 

Organism Cricetulus griseus, hamster, Chinese
Product Format frozen
Morphology epithelial-like
Culture Properties monolayer and suspension
Biosafety Level 1
Gender female
Applications
UV5 is a UV sensitive line derived from AA8 (see ATCC CRL-1859).
The line is defective in nucleotide excision repair, is sensitive to bulky adduct mutagens and belongs to excision repair complementation group 2.
Derivation
This line is a derivative of the CHO-K1 cell line (see ATCC CCL-61).
UV5 is a UV sensitive line derived from AA8 (see ATCC CRL-1859).
Clinical Data
female
Comments

UV5 is a UV sensitive line derived from AA8 (see ATCC CRL-1859).
The line is defective in nucleotide excision repair, is sensitive to bulky adduct mutagens and belongs to excision repair complementation group 2.
Complete Growth Medium Alpha minimum essential medium without ribonucleosides and deoxyribonucleosides, 90%; fetal bovine serum, 10%
Subculturing
Subcultivation Ratio: A subcultivation ratio of 1:4 to 1:12 is recommended
Medium Renewal: 2 to 3 times per week
To subculture attached cells, remove the medium and rinse the cells with fresh 0.25% trypsin, 0.03% EDTA.
Let the culture sit at 37C until the cells detach (about 5 minutes).
Add fresh medium, aspirate and transfer to new flasks.
The suspended cells are viable and can be used to start new cultures.
Population Doubling Time 13 hrs
Name of Depositor LH Thompson
