Applications
The cell line was established by Jose A. Lebron and Pamela J. Bjorkman in 1997.
Spleen cells were fused with HL-1 Friendly myeloma cells (a derivative of P3X63Ag8.653 that is deficient in both hypoxanthine phosphoribosyl transferase [HPRT] and adenine phosphoribosyl transferase [APRT]).
This antibody can be used for ELISA applications and to immunoprecipitate soluble HFE; it is not reactive in Western Blot assays.
Derivation
The cell line was established by Jose A. Lebron and Pamela J. Bjorkman in 1997.
Animals were tolerized with human beta2-microglobulin and immunized with purified, soluble, human HFE.
Spleen cells were fused with HL-1 Friendly myeloma cells (a derivative of P3X63Ag8.653 that is deficient in both hypoxanthine phosphoribosyl transferase [HPRT] and adenine phosphoribosyl transferase [APRT]).

Comments
The cell line was established by Jose A. Lebron and Pamela J. Bjorkman in 1997.

Spleen cells were fused with HL-1 Friendly myeloma cells (a derivative of P3X63Ag8.653 that is deficient in both hypoxanthine phosphoribosyl transferase [HPRT] and adenine phosphoribosyl transferase [APRT]).
The antibody recognizes the HFE portion of the HFE/beta2 heterodimer.
HFE is a major histocompatibility complex (MHC) related protein that is mutated in the iron-overload disease hereditary hemochromatosis.
This antibody can be used for ELISA applications and to immunoprecipitate soluble HFE; it is not reactive in Western Blot assays.
Complete Growth Medium HL-1 medium supplemented with 4 mM L-glutamine, 1 mM sodium pyruvate and 1% fetal bovine serum. HL-1 medium can be obtained from from Lonza (catalog number 77201).
Subculturing
Medium Renewal: Add fresh medium every 2 to 3 days (depending on cell density)
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 1 to 2 X 10 exp5 viable cells/ml.
Maintain cell density between 1 X 10 exp5 and 1 X 10 exp6 viable cells/ml.
Attached cells may be subcultured by tapping the sides of the flask until cells are dispersed.
Cryopreservation
HL-1 Complete Serum-free Medium, 75%; fetal bovine serum, 20%; DMSO, 5%.
Culture Conditions
Temperature: 37.0°C
Name of Depositor PJ Bjorkman
Year of Origin 1997
