Tissue
kidney
Product Format frozen

Age 69 years
Gender male
Ethnicity Caucasian
Storage Conditions liquid nitrogen vapor phase
Karyotype (P8) hypopentaploid to hypohexaploid (+A2, +A3, +B, +C, +D, +F, +G, -A) with abnormalities including dicentrics, acrocentric fragments, minutes, breaks, and large subtelocentric markers
Derivation
According to the originator, Caki-2 was established from a primary clear cell carcinoma of the kidney.
This is another line isolated from a primary renal carcinoma by J. Fogh as indicated in the description for ATCC HTB-46.
Clinical Data
69 years
Caucasian
male
Antigen Expression
Antigen expression: Blood Type A; Rh-
Tumorigenic Yes
Effects
Yes, in nude mice; forms clear cell carcinoma
Comments Recent evaluation (K. Pulkkanen and J. Parkinen, personal communication) of nude mouse tumors formed by this line in orthotopic and s.c. implantations were consistent with cystic papillary renal cell carcinoma according to the criteria of Kovacs et al.
Ultrastructural features reported include microvilli and microfilaments with few mitochondria, lysosomes or lipid droplets.
Frequent multilamellar bodies were observed, but no virus particles were seen.
Complete Growth Medium The base medium for this cell line is ATCC-formulated McCoy's 5a Medium Modified, Catalog No. 30-2007. 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 1:6 is recommended
Medium Renewal: 2 to 3 times per week
Cryopreservation
Culture medium, 95%; DMSO, 5%
