Karyotype This is a hypertriploid human cell line. The modal chromosome number was 80, occurring in 40% of cells. The rate of cells with higher ploidies was 1.2%. Sixteen marker chromosomes were found in most cells.
Derivation
ZR-75-30 was derived from malignant ascites fluid from a 47-year-old premenopausal Black woman with infiltrating ductal carcinoma. ­
Clinical Data
47 years
Black
female
Comments
These cells have been characterized to be human, non-HeLa, malignant mammary epithelium in origin.
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%.


Phenol Red is a structural mimic for estrogen. Therefore the estrogenic activity of phenol red should be considered in any studies that utilize estrogen-responsive cells in culture (RefBerthois Y, et al. Phenol red in tissue culture media is a weak estrogen: implications concerning the study of estrogen-responsive cells in culture. Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA 83: 2496–2500, 1986. PubMed: 3458212). The Phenol Red-free version of RPMI 1640, is ATCC catalog No. 30-2602.

Subculturing
Volumes are given for a 75 cm2 flask. Increase or decrease the amount of dissociation medium needed proportionally for culture vessels of other sizes.
  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.
