Derivation
U-118 MG and U-138 MG are very similar cytogenetically and share at least six derivative marker chromosomes.
This is one of a number of cell lines derived from malignant gliomas (see also ATCC HTB-14 and ATCC HTB-16) by J. Ponten and associates from 1966 to 1969.

Caucasian
male
Antigen Expression
Blood Type A, Rh+; HLA Aw24, A28, B12, Bw47
Tumorigenic Yes
Effects
Yes, in nude mice inoculated subcutaneously with 10(7) cells
Comments
NOTE: The two glioblastoma cell lines, U-118 MG (HTB-15) and U-138 MG (HTB-16), reportedly from different individuals have identical VNTR and similar STR patterns.
U-118 MG and U-138 MG are very similar cytogenetically and share at least six derivative marker chromosomes.
Mycoplasma contamination was eliminated in 1987 by treatment with BM-Cycline over a six week culture period.
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
Remove medium, and rinse with 0.25% trypsin, 0.03% EDTA solution. Remove the solution and add an additional 1 to 2 mL of trypsin-EDTA solution. Allow the flask to sit at room temperature (or at 37°C) until the cells detach. Add fresh culture medium, aspirate and dispense into new culture flasks.
Subcultivation Ratio: A subcultivation ratio of 1:3 to 1:8 is recommended
Medium Renewal: 2 to 3 times per week
Cryopreservation
Freeze medium: Complete growth medium, 95%; DMSO, 5%
Storage temperature: liquid nitrogen vapot temperature
