Derivation

HCC38 BL is a B lymphoblastoid cell line initiated by Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) transformation of peripheral blood lymphocytes obtained from the same patient as HCC38. 

HCC38 was initiated from a 50-year-old white female with primary breast ductal carcinoma and a prior history of leiomyosarcoma; her mother died of breast cancer.
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
Cultures can be maintained by addition of fresh medium or replacement of medium. Alternatively, cultures can be established by centrifugation with subsequent resuspension in fresh medium at 3 to 5 x 105 viable cells/mL. Maintain cultures at cell concentrations between 5 x 105 and 2 x 106 viable cells/mL.
Medium Renewal: Add fresh medium every 3 to 4 days (depending on cell density).
Cryopreservation Complete growth medium 95%; DMSO, 5%. Cell culture tested DMSO is available as ATCC Catalog No. 4-X.
Culture Conditions
Temperature: 37°C
