This is an aneuploid human male cell line. Monosomy of many of the normal chromosomes is noted as well as bisomy in this subtetraploid cell line; however, translocations and deletions involving many of the missing chromosomes are noted, and these chromosomal rearrangements appear to be stable and generally paired. Twelve marker chromosomes were identified including: der(16)t(1;16)(q21;q23), der(22)t(4;22)(q12;q13), der(12)t(11;12)(q23;p12), del(17)(p11), der(19)t(5;19)(?q21;q13) and others.

Comments
This cell line is aneuploid, will form colonies in soft agar and retains small cell carcinoma morphology and ultrastructure as well as APUD cell characteristics.
The cells grow in aggregates, thus cell counts are not accurate.
The cells stain positively for cytokeratins.
The line can be adapted to grow in shaker flask or spinner flask systems.
The N-myc gene is amplified, and there is expression of the mRNA and protein.
C-myc mRNA, but not protein, is expressed at a low level.
There is expression of c-myb, v-fes, v-fms, c-raf 1, Ha-ras, Ki-ras and N-ras mRNA.
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%.
Subculturing
Attached cells can be detached by shaking flask Allow aggregates to settle to the bottom of the flask, remove and discard the supernatant medium. Add fresh medium, disperse cells by gentle pipetting and dispense into new flasks. Do not break down aggregates. Subculture every 6 to 8 days.
Subcultivation Ratio: A subcultivation ratio of 1:2 to 1:4 is recommended
Medium Renewal: 2 times weekly
Cryopreservation
Freeze medium: Complete growth medium, 95%; DMSO, 5%
Storage temperature: liquid nitrogen vapor temperature
Culture Conditions
Temperature: 37.0°C
