Tissue brain/cerebral cortex
Cell Type endothelialpolyoma middle T antigen transformed
Product Format frozen
Morphology endothelial
Culture Properties adherent
Biosafety Level 1
Disease endothelioma

Strain BALB/c
Applications
The cells were transformed by infection with the NTKmT retrovirus vector that expresses polyomavirus middle T antigen.
The endothelial nature of these cells was confirmed by the observed expression of von Willebrand factor and uptake of fluorescently labeled low density lipoprotein (LDL).
Storage Conditions liquid nitrogen vapor temperature
Derivation
The cells were transformed by infection with the NTKmT retrovirus vector that expresses polyomavirus middle T antigen.
Antigen Expression
ICAM-1 +; VCAM-1 +; MAdCAM-1 +
Genes Expressed

von Willebrand factor,ICAM-1 +; VCAM-1 +; MAdCAM-1 +,The endothelial nature of these cells was confirmed by the observed expression of von Willebrand factor and uptake of fluorescently labeled low density lipoprotein (LDL).,The expression of Peyer's Patch high endothelial receptor for lymphocytes, the mucosal vascular addressin (MAdCAM-1) and E-selectin can be induced on bEnd.
Comments
The endothelial nature of these cells was confirmed by the observed expression of von Willebrand factor and uptake of fluorescently labeled low density lipoprotein (LDL).
The expression of Peyer's Patch high endothelial receptor for lymphocytes, the mucosal vascular addressin (MAdCAM-1) and E-selectin can be induced on bEnd.3 cells by cytokines and lipopolysaccharide (LPS).
This induction by Tumor Necrosis Factor alpha (TNF alpha), interleukin 1 (IL-1) or LPS is concentration and time dependent.
MAdCAM-1 is expressed on the surface of unstimulated bEnd.3 cells at early passages but not at passages greater than 30.
Intracellular adhesion molecule 1 (ICAM-1) is constitutively expressed on the cells, and expression is increased by treatment with LPS, IL-1 and TNF alpha.
Vascular cell adhesion molecule 1 (VCAM-1) is constitutively expressed on the cells at early passages but not at passages over 30.
P-selectin can be induced on bEnd.3 cells by Tumor Necrosis Factor alpha (TNF alpha) at both early and late passages but expression is greater at passages over 30.
Complete Growth Medium The base medium for this cell line is ATCC-formulated Dulbecco's Modified Eagle's Medium, Catalog No. 30-2002. To make the complete growth medium, add the following components to the base medium: fetal bovine serum to a final concentration of 10%.
Subculturing
Remove and discard culture medium. Briefly rinse the cell layer with 0.25% (w/v) Trypsin-0.03% (w/v) EDTA solution to remove all traces of serum which contains trypsin inhibitor.Add 1.0 to 2.0 mL of Trypsin-EDTA solution to flask and observe cells under an inverted microscope until cell layer just begins to detach. Add 6.0 to 8.0 mL of complete growth medium and aspirate cells by gently pipetting. Add appropriate aliquots of the cell suspension to new culture vessels.
Subcultivation Ratio: A subcultivation ratio of 1:6 to 1:10 is recommended
Medium Renewal: Every 2 to 3 days
Cryopreservation
Freeze medium: Complete growth medium, 95%; DMSO, 5%
Storage temperature: liquid nitrogen vapor temperature
Culture Conditions
Temperature: 37°C
Atmosphere: air, 95%; carbon dioxide (CO2), 5%
Name of Depositor EC Butcher
Passage History
MAdCAM-1 is expressed on the surface of unstimulated bEnd.3 cells at early passages but not at passages greater than 30.
P-selectin can be induced on bEnd.3 cells by Tumor Necrosis Factor alpha (TNF alpha) at both early and late passages but expression is greater at passages over 30.
Vascular cell adhesion molecule 1 (VCAM-1) is constitutively expressed on the cells at early passages but not at passages over 30.
