XR-V15B is a X-ray sensitive Chinese Hamster Lung fibroblast cell line isolated from an ethylnitrosourea (ENU)-mutagenized cell population of V79 cells on the basis of its hypersensitivity to X-rays.
Comments
XR-V15B is a X-ray sensitive Chinese Hamster Lung fibroblast cell line isolated from an ethylnitrosourea (ENU)-mutagenized cell population of V79 cells on the basis of its hypersensitivity to X-rays.
These cells belong to X-ray complementation group 5 and are mutant in the p86 subunit of the Ku autoantigen.
Ku has been shown to be involved in DNA double-strand break repair and V(D)J recombination. Cells will revert to wild type on treatment with azacytidine.
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 1:8 to 1:12 is recommended
Medium Renewal: Every 2 to 3 days
Remove medium, rinse quickly with 0.25% trypsin, 0.03% EDTA solution, add 1-2 ml additional trypsin solution and allow flasks to set at room temperature (or at 37C) until the cells detach. Add fresh culture medium, aspirate and dispense into new flasks.
Cryopreservation
culture medium 95%; DMSO, 5%
Culture Conditions
Temperature: 37.0°C
Name of Depositor G Chu
