Applications

This cell line is a suitable transfection host.

Storage Conditions liquid nitrogen vapor phase
Karyotype The cell line is aneuploid human female, with chromosome counts in the triploid to hypertriploid range. Neither of the X chromosomes are normal, but their q arms are detected in a translocation with chromosome N4. Normal chromosomes N1, N4, N13, and N17 are clearly under-represented, while chromosomes N6, N18, and N20 are consistently over-represented with respect to the copy numbers of other normal chromosomes. Eight marker chromosomes are identified: 5p+, t(1pter--->cen::9q12--->9q33::3p21--->3pter), t(1p;?), der(2)t(1;2)(q21;q24), 12p+, der(6)t(6;?)(q21;?), der(4)t(X;4)(q13;q34), del(16)(p13). The cytogenetic and isozyme phenotype descriptors are in accord with those given by J. Fogh.

Complete Growth Medium The base medium for this cell line is ATCC-formulated Eagle's Minimum Essential Medium, Catalog No. 30-2003. To make the complete growth medium, add the following components to the base medium: fetal bovine serum to a final concentration of 10%.
Subculturing
Protocol:
  1. Remove and discard culture medium.
  2. Briefly rinse the cell layer with 0.25% (w/v) Trypsin- 0.53 mM EDTA solution to remove all traces of serum that contains trypsin inhibitor.
  3. Add 2.0 to 3.0 mL of Trypsin-EDTA solution to flask and observe cells under an inverted microscope until cell layer is dispersed (usually within 5 to 15 minutes).
    Note: To avoid clumping do not agitate the cells by hitting or shaking the flask while waiting for the cells to detach. Cells that are difficult to detach may be placed at 37°C to facilitate dispersal.
  4. Add 6.0 to 8.0 mL of complete growth medium and aspirate cells by gently pipetting.
  5. Add appropriate aliquots of the cell suspension to new culture vessels.
  6. Incubate cultures at 37°C.
Subcultivation Ratio: A subcultivation ratio of 1:2 to 1:5 is recommended
Medium Renewal: 2 to 3 times per week
Cryopreservation
