Organism Rattus norvegicus, rat
Cell Type E1A immortalized
Product Format frozen
Morphology epithelial
Culture Properties adherent
Biosafety Level 1
Age 7 days
Strain Fischer
Applications
transfection host
Derivation
The RK3E cell line was derived by immortalizing rat kidney cells with the E1A oncogene.
Tumorigenic No
Effects
No, The cells were not tumorigenic in immunosuppressed mice, but did form colonies in semisolid medium.
Comments
The RK3E cell line was derived by immortalizing rat kidney cells with the E1A oncogene.
The cells can be transformed with the RAS and GLI oncogenes.
The cells have an essentially normal karyotype with the exception of one 5q.
Transformation with RAS or GLI renders the cells tumorigenic.
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
Subcultivation Ratio: A subcultivation ratio of 1:3 to 1:6 is recommended
Medium Renewal: Every 2 to 3 days
Remove old medium, and add fresh 0.25% trypsin, 0.03% EDTA solution. Let sit 2 minutes, remove trypsin and allow the flask to incubate at 37C for 5 minutes. Add fresh medium, aspirate and dispense into new flasks.
