Cellular Products
adrenocorticotropin (adrenocorticotropic hormone, ACTH); bombesin; calcitonin; human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG); glucagon; growth hormone; 17 beta estradiol; thyroid releasing hormone; oxytocin - neurophysin (OT-NP); parathormone;
somatostatin-like immunoreactivity (SRIF)
Tumorigenic Yes
Effects
Yes, tumors developed within 21 days at 100% frequency (5/5) in nude mice inoculated subcutaneously with 107 cells.
Comments
The patient had not received prior therapy.

The cells express HLA class I and class II antigens.

Early passages of the cells were contaminated with a bovine mycoplasma (Acholeplasma laidlawii) which was cured (prior to cryopreservation) with A. laidlawii antiserum and kanamycin derived products.

 

Complete Growth Medium Waymouth's MB 752/1 medium, 90%; fetal bovine serum, 10%
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.
Interval: Keep cells heavy and subculture often
Subcultivation Ratio: 1:2 to 1:3
Medium Renewal: Every 2 to 3 days
Cryopreservation
Freeze Medium: Complete growth medium supplemented with 5% (v/v) DMSO
Storage Temperature: Liquid nitrogen vapor phase
Culture Conditions
Atmosphere: Air, 95%; carbon dioxide (CO2), 5%
Temperature: 37°C
Growth Conditions: Keep cells heavy and subculture often.
