Comments

The cells contain at least one Ph1 (Philadelphia) chromosome. The cell line has some characteristics of basophilic leukocytes (Fc receptors, basophilic granules, histamine production), and are negative for lymphoid markers.

Complete Growth Medium The base medium for this cell line is ATCC-formulated RPMI-1640 Medium, Catalog No. 30-2001. To make the complete growth medium, add the following components to the base medium: fetal bovine serum to a final concentration of 10%.
Subculturing
Cultures can be maintained by addition of fresh medium. Alternatively, cultures can be established by centrifugation with subsequent resuspension at 3 X 105 viable cells/mL.  Do not allow the cell concentration to exceed 3 x 106 cells/mL.
Medium Renewal: every 2 to 3 days
Cryopreservation
Freeze medium: Complete growth medium supplemented with 5% (v/v) DMSO
Storage temperature: liquid nitrogen vapor phase
Culture Conditions
Atmosphere: air, 95%; carbon dioxide (CO2), 5%
Temperature: 37°C
Population Doubling Time 20 to 30 hours
Name of Depositor K Kishi
Year of Origin August 1, 1981
